Public Beach Rules & Regulations
The City of Gulf Shores strives to provide a safe, clean, family friendly environment for everyone visiting our public beaches. We ask that you take the time to familiarize yourself with the following rules, regulations, and helpful reminders.
  • Tents and shelters larger than 7 feet by 7 feet and taller than 4 feet are not allowed on public beaches. Individual property owners may allow tents and shelters on private property north of the City of Gulf Shores pole markers provided.
  • Any structures or equipment left on the public beach after 8 p.m. will be removed and disposed of by beach patrol.
  • Please keep off the dunes. Staying off the dunes will help us to preserve our dune system and the habitat it provides. Use beach walkover and boardwalks where provided.
  • Observe and obey the Beach Warning Flag System.
  • We encourage you to swim near lifeguard protected waters.
  • Call 251-968-TIDE (8433) for current surf conditions.
