Alabama Point Public Beach, Gulf of Mexico

Orange Beach, Alabama
Mis à jour par Mobile Baykeeper

Alabama Point may be referred to as Florida Point or simply Perdido Pass. Locals may use these terms interchangeably when discussing where Perdido Pass connects Cotton Bayou, Terry’s Cove, and Bayou Saint John to the Gulf of Mexico. This monitoring location is located at the easternmost beach access point from the Perdido Pass bridge. Parking is free but limited. A fenced pathway through the dune line allows for beach access along the Gulf of Mexico. Onsite amenities, such as restrooms, may not be available or may be temporary during busy seasons. Those looking to surf the jetties or snorkel the sandbar area may want to explore the western side of the Pass. Parking regulations are enforced, so use public lots to avoid being towed.

This beach information is maintained by Mobile Baykeeper, using data from the Alabama Department of Environmental Management and Alabama Department of Public Health. Depending on the site, samples are collected twice per week, once per week or once every other week during the swimming season (May through September) and once per month during the cooler months.

Water samples are analyzed for the indicator bacteria Enterococci. Beaches will be marked as unsafe (red) for swimming when sample results show more than 104 Enterococci colonies per 100 ml of water and will be marked as safe (green) when Enterococci colonies are below 104 colonies per 100 ml of water. A grey status indicates a lack of current or reliable data for a particular site.
