The natural beauty of Dauphin Island, Alabama
, is treasured by its residents and it is shared by those on vacation who are drawn to its pristine white beaches and lovingly manicured parks. Migratory birds make the lush 137 acres of the Audubon Bird Sanctuary
their temporary home. Walk along the three-mile trail which winds its way through the maritime forest, next to marshes, a lake and a beach, and you will discover for yourself why Dauphin Island is known as the place Where Adventure Comes Naturally
. Beach-side homes solidly resting on tree-trunk stilts offer a view of the Gulf of Mexico
The modern-day roots of Dauphin Island go back to the 17th Century when a small French colony
established its presence. Tales of pirate raids stir the imagination.
When you are here on your holidays, you can uncover the complete story of the buccaneer who looted the storehouses of this colony around 1710. History is bought to life at Fort Gaines
, located at Mobile Bay.
