Celebrate your love with a getaway for you and your sweetheart. If you’re on a trip with others, take some time away from the group to reconnect on a special date. No matter how you carve out time together, there are plenty of places for a romantic date on Alabama’s Gulf Coast. Make that getaway to a place full of fun, sun, sand, and water when you choose Gulf Shores. Get things started out right and book a private vacation rental in Gulf Shores with Poole & Associates so you can enjoy some time together whenever you please. If you can’t stand a moment away from your furry family members, ask about pet-friendly rentals and bring them along!
Romantic Beach Time
While you may have spent the day swimming, lounging in the sand, or more adrenaline-pumping activities like parasailing during the day, the beach at night can be a romantic scene. Take a stroll hand-in-hand along the sand. Wander close to the water and slip off your shoes, letting the waves lap over your feet. Spread out a blanket and watch the sunset with a beach picnic, then head back to your accommodations and finish the night with a drink.
The Alabama Gulf Coast has a myriad of options. Get dressed up a bit and choose a seafood dinner with Gulf front views at Voyagers at Perdido Beach Resort. Enjoy some live entertainment while you dine at Ginny Lane Bar and Grill at the Wharf. Choose from USDA prime beef, free-range chicken, fresh seafood, and more. If the kids do need to tag along, there are options for them, too. More relaxed atmospheres like Tacky Jacks, The Hangout, and others are not just area staples, but a more relaxed atmosphere catering to kids and adults.
If the trip is just you and your sweetheart, plan a romantic dinner in. The fully equipped kitchen in your unit is ready to handle any meal! Choose to cook a favorite meal together with fresh ingredients from the local market. Surprise your love and make the meal yourself. You’ll have everything you need, from utensils to cookware, right at your fingertips.
You may like taking a serene paddle around the water in the morning before the water and beach get busy for the day. The calmer waters around Bird Island are the perfect place. Several kayak tour companies want you to consider something different: glow kayaking. The nighttime-only trips are taken on clear-body kayaks outfitted with special underwater LED lights to light up the night and the water like you’ve never seen before. You can choose a color or color pattern that suits you mood. Look down through the bottom of your boat not just for the lights, but to see the beautiful creatures swimming below you. You can choose a two-person kayak or stick close to one another during the paddle but control your own vessel.
As one of the most popular indoor activities in the last several years, escape room facilities are popping up everywhere, including the Alabama Gulf Coast. Get out of the sun and into the air conditioning to test your logic skills. Rooms are rated by difficulty and even come with age and group-size suggestions. If it’s just you and your love, you’ll likely get grouped with others. If you’ve come with multiple other couples, you’ll be able to work together. Enjoy themes like Insane Asylum, CSI: Gulf Shores, Movie Night, and many others that give your brain a workout. Solve all the clues and break out in 60 minutes to win!
End the day with a sunset cruise. There are plenty of boat charter companies that offer sunset cruises through the waters of Gulf Shores and the surrounding area. Watch the sunset as the captain navigates you through the water, searching for dolphins, aquatic birds, and more. Sip an adult beverage as you take in the beautiful Alabama coast and Gulf waters with your sweetheart for a great way to end any day of your stay.

Coming to a beach destination like Gulf Shores means spending plenty of time on the beach. You can choose to lay out and sunbathe, plant a beach umbrella, and spread out a blanket and read or picnic, take a swim in the Gulf, or take a walk on the beach together. Turn up the adrenaline with activities like parasailing, SCUBA diving, snorkeling, and even deep-sea fishing.
Gulf Shores Museum
Learn about the place you’ve chosen to take your romantic respite. The Gulf Shores Museum is located in a house that dates back to before World War II and stood as the beach house of Valerie Cole’s family from Mobile. The family donated the structure, which was moved from its original West Beach location to its current home after Hurricane Frederic in 1979. The museum houses many permanent and temporary exhibits that tell the story of Gulf Shores’ history, as well as offering various programs and activities for all ages and many interests.
The shop has been a Gulf Shores staple since 1956 and is open seven days a week. While you’ll collect souvenirs from other activities and attractions, like beach adventures, the shop has “thousands of gifts for everyone on your list” so you’re bound to find something to remember your time here.
There are several spas in the Gulf Shores area that are ready for the two of you to pamper yourselves together. Many offer special couples’ services like couples’ massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, and more. Some spas even offer services customized for a gentleman’s specific needs.
Besides your love, there’s something to celebrate throughout the year in Gulf Shores! You can make one of the festivals or events part of your vacation plans. Just check the Gulf Shores website to find out what kind of celebrations are going on during your stay.
Gulf State Park
Wander two miles of Gulf beachfront, swim, surf, build sand castles, and enjoy a myriad of other beach activities. The park also has a beach pavilion where you can picnic together. If you and your sweetheart enjoy fishing, you’ll want to bring some gear and spend some time at the pier. For couples looking for an adventure, try kayaking or even parasailing!
Fort Morgan Road Trail
The 5.6-mile asphalt trail starts just outside the western border of Gulf State Park and stretches west through Gulf Shores. It runs parallel to Fort Morgan Road/Highway 180 and runs through tree-lined areas and neighborhoods, finally ending at the Peninsula Golf Club. The trail is an easy hike or bike, as it’s mostly a flat surface, but the eastern end of the trail has only a few gentle climbs. Add some difficulty on the eastern end and continue on through Gulf State Park’s Hugh Branyon Backcountry Trails.
Gulf Shores Dog Park
If your pup or pups made the trip with you, they need their exercise, too! The Gulf Shores Dog Park has a large fenced-in green area where both large and small dogs can get their zoomies out. Humans can sit and socialize themselves while keeping an eye on their pup and cleaning up after them using the provided waste bag stations. You can bring water for yourself, but the park provides water for the pets!
