Gulf Coast Beach Area Update

Beach before and after

Following the landfall of Hurricane Sally directly on the Alabama Gulf Coast in mid-September, we are pleased to announce that the Gulf Shores office of Meyer Vacation Rentals has reopened, and our team is taking calls for future reservations.

Area restoration efforts continue to progress more quickly than anticipated. Beaches are open. However, because there is more work to be completed, most public beach access points will remain closed until further notice due to safety concerns, including:

Beach newGulf Shores
  • Gulf Place
  • West Gulf Place
  • West 5th St.
  • West 6th St.
  • West 10th St.
  • West 12th St.
  • West 13th St.
  • Little Lagoon Pass Park

Gulf State Park
  • Gulf State Park Pier
  • Gulf State Park Pavilion
  • Beach access at Perdido Beach Blvd. and State Park Road 2

Extended closures of public access areas are strictly due to safety concerns. Repairs to boardwalks and other damaged areas will take place as quickly as posible. Reopening of access points and parking lots should begin in mid-October as soon as they are fully repaired and deemed safe.

Power has been restored to 100 percent of meters that are not damaged and are able to receive power in the Baldwin EMC electrical management area. (Details)

While most field inspections of Meyer properties have been completed, reports are still being filed, and repairs are being arranged and completed. Properties without damage are being thoroughly cleaned in preparation for welcoming guests back to the beach as soon as possible.

Gulf Shores restaurants are open.
For the most part, grocery stores, gas stations, pharmacies, dollar stores, medical facilities and restaurants throughout the Gulf Coast area are now open, with more continuing to open as repairs are made. See a list of businesses and their statuses HERE. This list will continue to be updated as more information becomes available.

Vacationer favorites such as Flora-Bama and LuLu's are open.

The majority of shops at Tanger Outlets Foley are open. Please check the following link for individual store info: Tanger Outlet Foley.

More openings will be listed on this page as information becomes available. Thank you for your continued understanding and patience.

Face Coverings Required In Alabama

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey's Safer at Home order requires the use of face masks in public when interacting within six feet with people of another household. Children 6 years of age or younger are exempt from this requirement, which will remain in effect through November 8.

The governor and local municipalities have assured that masks are not required on the beach as long as a six-foot distance can be maintained between household groups.
