What if there was a place off the beaten path, with secluded private beaches and beautiful beach homes….not surrounded by high rise condominiums but surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes? Well, there is. It is called the Fort Morgan Peninsula. It is becoming more of a popular destination for vacationers wanting to really get away from it all, yet be close enough to the “touristy attractions” just in case they choose to participate.
Ft. Morgan peninsula stretches 22 miles west of the City of Gulf Shores. It has the beautiful Gulf of Mexico on the south side and Mobile Bay on the north side, as well as Little Lagoon closer into the city limits of Gulf Shores. Here you can enjoy relaxing on the beautiful beaches, great fishing and crabbing, exploring the historical Fort Morgan and much more.
There are a few delicious restaurants along the peninsula we suggest you try during your stay. Tacky Jacks II is located almost at the end of Ft. Morgan Road and offers breathtaking views of Mobile Bay. They offer casual dining, which is pretty much the way everything is down here:), with delicious seafood and amazing breakfast (the farmers omelet is the best)! Sassy Bass is a newer spot to eat down here that has gotten some rave reviews by our guests and us too:) Sassy Bass is also the new owner of Plaza West Grocery and Package Store, which is great to pick up any “last minute” groceries or beach items. One last great spot to eat down here is Behind the Pines. It offers a great, laid back atmosphere with delicious food and often has live music.
Other than that… what you are going to find is beach, beach and more beach! Major grocery shopping is apx. 20 minutes from most of our rental houses however there is a grocery delivery service we recommend called HomeAway Groceries. They will have all of your items stocked in your beach house before you even arrive. No need to waste valuable beach time waiting in line at the supermarket after your long drive. It’s so easy and affordable. Just log onto their website, order your items from their virtual grocery store, pay with a credit card, and they will handle the rest.
What else is needed for a perfect week at the beach? Beach Equipment!!! Call Beach Bum Services for all of your bummin’ needs. They have wind resistant beach canopies and chairs available for rent as well as beach umbrellas, boogie boards and barbecue grills. Just place your order online or by phone and they will have everything set up for you on your arrival day. They set up and secure the beach canopies at your beach home for the week, then come and take them down after your stay. What a wonderful idea!!!
We can’t wait to share our hidden paradise with you!
