Start things off by pampering yourselves. You and your new spouse can both relax with a couple’s massage. Enjoy Swedish, hot stone, or deep tissue massages. Quietly massage the stress away and get ready to enjoy your honeymoon. Not into massage? That’s ok, you both can do some quiet meditation or yoga on the beach while the sun rises and the world wakes up. Not a bad way to start the day.
The mood continues as the two of you can enjoy that first cup of coffee (or mimosa – it is your honeymoon after all!) while sitting out on your own deck, watching the pelicans and gulls as they fish for breakfast. Take a few steps out the door and spend some quality time together strolling along the sparkling white sand beaches. Harris Properties has beachfront cottages and condos all along the water in Gulf Shores, each with a deck or porch just waiting for you. Breathe in that fresh ocean air and you can feel the stress melt away.
If the beach isn’t your cup of tea, take a look at our Gulf Shores honeymoon rentals along the Back Bay. Quiet, calm and soothing—just what you need after the frenzied fun of the wedding. Kayak or paddleboard along the Back Bay and enjoy a close-up view of marine life while you paddle through cypress swamps and freshwater lakes. Book a boat or kayak tour of the serene Gulf Coast backwaters and explore the swamps of the lower Mobile Tensaw Delta with its Cypress trees and Spanish moss, alligators, snakes and turtles, osprey and heron. A kayak tour is a great way to learn more about the history, geology and unique ecology of this Delta paradise.
For another totally different perspective of the Gulf, take a hot air balloon ride, just the two of you, for a stunning panoramic view of the coastline. Set off just after dawn or near sunset and drift through the clouds as you admire the Gulf Coast. Many hot air balloon companies have complimentary champagne toasts after touchdown too!
Or book a private fishing charter or dolphin sightseeing tour and spend a few hours alongside frolicking dolphins while you catch dinner. End the day with a romantic sunset sightseeing cruise.
Spend time doing the things you both love. Golf (try Kiva Dunes, or mini golf at Pirate’s Island Adventure Golf) or hike along one of the many nature trails in the area; Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge’s trails meander through dunes, wetlands, maritime forests and scrub habitats and is home to many endangered wildlife species. The Refuge, on the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail, is a stopover for migrating birds – if you or your partner is a bird lover, this is paradise.
Head to Gulf State Park for hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, cable skiing, cave tours and rock climbing, zip lining and parasailing! Don’t worry about having to bring your boat or kayak with you on your trip, you can rent everything you need right at the park. The two of you can spend the day doing the things you love to do or try something new like paddle boarding yoga or geocaching.
Dinner Time & Nightlife
Enjoy all the fresh seafood you can eat anyway you like it! Gulf Coast oysters and shrimp can’t be beat. Enjoy buffets and beachside hangouts—stay casual at the Hangout and Lulu’s—or get dressed up and head to Sunset Cork Room or the Coast Restaurant & Sushi Bar for some fine dining. Hit one of the touristy spots for some background noise or head for something more upscale for a little quiet romance. Not sure about where to dine and you just don’t trust some of those online reviews? Don’t worry. Just give us a call, and our knowledgeable staff can make suggestions. We’ve been in the area a long time now and know just what you’ll need for the perfect night out.
And of course, you can’t come to the Gulf without hitting the famous Flora-Bama honkey tonk at least once for oysters, beer and live music! This action-packed beachfront establishment is in nearby Perdido Key, Florida, and is the place to be when you all need some rowdy fun and want to dance the night away.
After a long day of hiking, beachcombing or parasailing, you’ll need a place for some downtime and for quiet time together. Our rentals are just the thing. We have properties on the beach or bay, near golf courses or nature trails. We have rentals right in the middle of the beach action, and rentals that are slightly more secluded for quiet times spent together. If you love moonlight walks along the soft, sandy beach, rent one of our beachfront Gulf Shores properties. If you love watching the moonlight and the stars reflecting off the dark, still waters of the bay, we have quiet bay front rentals that will be just right.
Free Wi-Fi will keep you connected to the rest of the world when you want to be, and large expansive windows will keep you visually connected to the beach and fun right outside. Many of our luxury rentals come with gourmet kitchens, private docks and swimming pools, and we have condos located in resort communities so you can take advantage of those extra amenities including spas, tennis courts and fitness centers.
When you’re planning your honeymoon in Gulf Shores, give us a call. We can help you find the perfect Gulf Shores honeymoon rentals for your needs, and make suggestions for activities in the area. We can help take some of the stress out of the planning so you can focus on enjoying this important event.
