When you’re ready to disconnect from the everyday to reconnect with your best girlfriends, make a beeline for the beach for sun, fun and friendship. A girls getaway in Gulf Shores is the perfect opportunity to wine and dine and recharge the soul. But, what do you need to know to plan the ultimate girlfriend getaway on the Alabama Gulf Coast? We’ve got the details.
Girls Getaway Gulf Shores Activities
You know Gulf Shores is your go-to destination for 32 miles of white-sand beaches. No matter the time of year, there’s plenty of sun and sand to go around. Bring a book or your favorite magazine and veg with your gal pals while your toes are in the sand. Be sure to reserve your beach chairs at The Beach Club Resort & Spa prior to your trip. Get the best seat on the beach as a Spectrum Resorts guest.
For the ultimate in relaxation, plan a day of pampering at The Spa & Salon, also located at The Beach Club. Bring your girlfriends and book a Spa Sampler to create your own, personalized pampering package. With the Spa Sampler, you can select three treatments, including manicures, facials, massages and more. The full-service spa also features a relaxation room where you and your best girlfriends can soothe your souls with a soak in the hot tub or order up a spa lunch from Coast Restaurant & Sushi Bar. Sound like paradise? It is!
After you’ve checked the beach and the spa off your Gulf Shores girls getaway list, think outside the box. Sure, you could go shopping, but why not try something to get your adrenaline pumping? The Hummingbird Zipline at The Wharf can provide the perfect prescription. Soar through the air on eight lines up to 115 feet above the ground at speeds of more than 30 miles per hour. Enjoy views of the Intracoastal Waterway and zip high above a Federally-protected wetland.
Follow up your high-flying adventure at Red or White, also at The Wharf. Soak up the laughter and share your favorite memories over a glass (or two) of your favorite wine. Red or White also offers a great selection of appetizers, small plates and cheese boards and is the perfect addition to your girls getaway in Gulf Shores.
Gulf Shores Restaurants with the Girls
For beach chic fun, head to The Gulf in Orange Beach. Couple the blackberry mojito with the waterfront views and the combination can’t be beat. The Gulf is built from re-purposed shipping containers and all dining is outdoors to allow panoramic views of Alabama Point. In the evenings, the dining area is lit with festival lights and fire pits.
Of course, you can’t miss dinner at Coast Restaurant & Sushi Bar at The Beach Club Resort & Spa. Coast is open seasonally, so call (251) 224-3600 prior to your visit to confirm hours and make a reservation. Feast on your favorite sushi rolls or split several appetizers. We recommend a dozen Murder Point oysters and the Marinated Gulf Seafood platter. Make reservations and request a seat outdoors for the best views of the beach.
