For those planning trips to Alabama’s beautiful Gulf Coast for spring break or summer vacation, expect to see an abundance of change for the better, including sand renourishment projects at the east end of Dauphin Island and in Baldwin County that will make the beaches wider and even more attractive for locals and visitors.

“It is great to see our beach being renourished,” said state Conservation Commissioner Chris Blankenship. “From the Florida line through Gulf State Park and Gulf Shores, to west of Little Lagoon Pass, the beaches in Baldwin County are getting several million cubic yards of fresh, clean sand.

“On Dauphin Island, there is a lot of sand moving as well,” Blankenship added. “In 2023, new islands and marsh area were created on the north side of the middle of Dauphin Island in Graveline Bay. The East End renourishment project just getting underway will put more than a million cubic yards of sand on the East End beach.”
