Orange Beach, Ala. – The City of Orange Beach, City of Gulf Shores and Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism have been working closely with Governor Kay Ivey and the State of Alabama to determine when beaches can safely reopen. While our area has seen vast improvement over the last eight days, there is still a lot of work to be done. Due to this, the closure of Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, Beach and Fort Morgan beaches has been extended to Friday, October 2.
This decision was made after speaking with residents, local businesses and assessing the amount of storm damage that our communities still need time to repair.
Visitors should contact their lodging accommodation provider for specific information related to their stay. All visitors must be prepared to show proof of reservation at any time in the event access to an area is restricted.
We appreciate your patience as we take care of our residents and continue working to rebuild Alabama’s coastal communities.
The City of Orange Beach will continue to share updates through our City’s website at www.orangebeachal.gov/news/hurricane-sally-recovery-update, and our social media channels, especially Facebook at www.facebook.com/orangebeach. For more information, call City Hall at 251-981-6979.
