Fort Morgan may be a little more secluded than Orange Beach or Gulf Shores, but there is still plenty to do here. Point of fact, people come to Fort Morgan because it is a quieter beach experience. But there are times when you need to get out and do something. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Practice your golf swing at Kiva Dunes Golf Course – you’ll stay cool on this breezy course, even in the summer – or head over to Historic Fort Morgan for a little living history. Lose yourself in a reenactment and you won’t notice the heat. Fort Morgan has been guarding this section of the coastline since the 1830s, through WWII. Take the kids to this pentagonal masonry fort for a live history reenactment, canon firing or maybe a try at their escape room. It’ll be cooler in those dungeons! What kid (or adult) wouldn’t want to pretend to be a captured Civil War spy trying to escape? The fort has miles of white sandy beaches, a public pier, and picnic areas too.
Hike or bike the many trails in the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge near our Fort Morgan beachfront house rentals. The refuge is on the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail and is a great place for bird watching. While prime birdwatching time is during migration months, there are plenty of year-round residents to keep any birder happy. Stay cool with a Night Prowl guided tour or just climb the observation tower to get closer to the soaring hawks and the breeze. And, birds aren’t the only thing you’ll see at the Refuge either. Keep an eye out for one of the many endangered species that call the refuge home, like the Alabama beach mouse or a loggerhead turtle.
Fort Morgan’s secluded beaches offer the perfect place to teach you kids to swim or how to fish, or maybe just the place to practice your fishing skills in solitude. Fish from one of the many public piers or charter a boat for a one-of-a-kind deep sea fishing adventure. Find out for yourself just how hard those trophy fish are to land! Or book a dolphin-watching cruise; it’s always cooler on the water!
And don’t worry about food. The restaurant scene is picking up here too. There are a variety of local spots with great fresh seafood. You won’t have to make the short trek into Gulf Shores unless you want to. Of course, with our rentals’ fully equipped kitchens, you’ll be able to whip up as many culinary delights as your group can handle. Rent one of our beach cottages with a grill, and you’ll be able to show off those grilmaster moves. Somehow eating your own catch of the day is tastier than eating someone else’s.
Of, course the best part about Fort Morgan in the summer is the beach – it’s everywhere! The peninsula is so small, you can almost see across from Gulf to Bay. And you can enjoy the bright white sand and beautiful blue water without the crowds. Grab a book and blanket and sunbathe all day. Take the cooler and all your gear, you won’t have to worry about bumping into the sunbather next to you. Do some serious beachcombing by your Fort Morgan beachfront house rentals, or grab your fishing rod and do some surf fishing. When you rent one of our cute beachfront cottages, your kids can roll right out of bed and hit the beach before it gets too hot. And since the beaches are less crowded, it’ll be easier to keep an eye on them too, from the comfort of your private beachfront deck.

At Harris Properties, we have rentals that are right on the beach, so you can just walk out the door and down to the beach. You can’t get any closer! You can step out onto the private deck and watch the sunrise with that first cup of coffee before you start your day of leisure. We also have Fort Morgan beachfront rentals that are part of gated communities or resorts which allow you to take advantage of all their amenities including pools, fitness centers, tennis courts, saunas and more. And if you love an ocean view, rent one of our upper floor condos; the aerial views of the coast are amazing. Stay nestled in your condo, high above the hustle and bustle of the beach below.
We have properties in Fort Morgan to handle any size group you bring. Planning a quiet, romantic getaway, or maybe a family reunion with the extended family? We’ve got a variety of rentals to choose from, from cute bungalows to large residences. And, if we can’t accommodate everyone in one place (and you may want a little space anyway), you can book several adjacent residences strung along the coast—perfect for that extended family reunion, or maybe a quiet business retreat. Everyone can get some privacy, but still be close together for all those bonding activities and family dinners. This will be the vacation they’ll remember for years.
