Enjoy a Beach-y Birthday Bash in Gulf Shores, Alabama

Birthdays are a time for celebration, joy, and creating unforgettable memories. If you ask us, there’s no better place for a great birthday bash than The Beach Club in Gulf Shores! With our white-sand beaches as your birthday backdrop and our full-service resort as your party partner, you can enjoy a coastal celebration like no other. And, you’ll be in the best spot to enjoy all the exciting attractions and activities the area has to offer! 

Here at The Beach Club, we ensure that every birthday – whether for a kid, a teen, or an adult – is as special as the sand and surf we’re famous for. Here are some fantastic birthday activities and ideas tailored for every age group to make your beach birthday celebration truly spectacular!

Kids Birthday Bash

Birthdays are a big deal in those younger days, and our area has plenty of amazing attractions and activities to match. Here at The Beach Club, Toby the Turtle loves treating our birthday guests to cake, balloons, and a resort-wide shoutout on our big screen TV! If your prince or princess needs some pampering on their big day, we also offer spa party packages that include pedicures for up to 5 children. View our birthday party packages with Toby the Turtle here.

Beyond the cake and balloons, our resort and surrounding area offers tons of fun for all party-goers.

  • Book a time with Aqua Fun Tails to add something special to that birthday photo – a mermaid tail! Your little one will love transforming into a mermaid for this magical photo shoot, which ends with a mermaid tail and top (or shark fin) to take home!
  • Guests booking direct with Spectrum Resorts can make a splash in our Clubhouse pool, where poolside activities (conga line, anyone?), table games, live music and food service invite you to play the day away.
  • Head to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo to explore unique exhibits, see the animals in action, and book a one-on-one Animal Encounter for a birthday kiss from a kangaroo!
  • Take a trip to The Track to ride Go-Karts, play Mini Golf, battle in Blaster Boats, or catch a new high score in Fat Daddy’s Arcade.
  • Have lunch at LuLu’s or The Hangout for family dining with a side of kid-friendly fun – think rope courses, foam pits, henna tattoos and more. Of course, if you’re at The Beach Club during the summer, make The Village Lawn your night time party destination with food trucks, live music, and a litany of kids activities!

Teens & Tweens

Let’s face it, teenagers can be hard to please. Take the panic out of party planning with a fun beach trip to Gulf Shores! If you stay at The Beach Club Resort, our gated and secure location offers the perfect balance of safety and independence for teens of all ages. Add in the insta-worthy activities all around our beachfront area, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for an un-boring birthday bash.

  •  Book a group lesson with Sandcastle University to learn how to build an amazing abode for the queen or king of the (sand)castle.
