Traveling Tips

Our local experts have agreed on a few important tips to remember regarding your drive to The Beach Club Resort & Spa.

  • Saturday is the busiest day for traffic during summer, especially times between 10am-6pm. If possible, avoid a check-in or check-out on Saturday to save on drive-time.
  • There is a ferry that runs from Dauphin Island to Fort Morgan. This route runs about the same in drive-time, but it is definitely a more scenic option.
  • Skip Highway 59, and take the Baldwin Beach Express. Travelers can access the Baldwin Beach Express from Exit 49 from Interstate 10. There are less congested traffic lights.

Leave Only Footprints

The Beach Club has joined the community initiative of Leave Only Footprints to protect our beautiful beaches and provide guests with pristine beach views. Enacted by the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach municipalities in 2016, Leave Only Footprints asks all patrons that anything brought to the beach is taken with you once you are done enjoying the sand for the day. For disposable items, there are multiple trash receptacles placed throughout the beach for your convenience.

Please note that any items left on the beach after sunset will be removed and disposed at sunset in compliance with mandatory U.S. Fish and Wildlife regulations. Not only do we want our guests to safely enjoy the beach, but we also want to protect the habitat of many endangered sea turtles, bird, and marine animal species that share our beach. We apologize if this is an inconvenience, but hope that you understand the benefits that this has for our environment.Wow, this is an important message, that you cannot miss!
