Crystal Shores West beach condos make it easy to spend quality with friends and family. For example, kitchens are welcoming, offering spacious counter surface for preparing meals as well as plenty of cabinet storage for stowing staples, all the while encouraging interaction with those gathered in the living area.

On site are a variety of family-friendly amenities, including an outdoor pool and hot tub, an indoor pool situated inside a sun-filled room, a spacious sauna, a barbecue area and an arcade/game room.

Getting to the beach is a breeze, even with kids and toys in tow. A wooden boardwalk leads directly to the sugar-white sands and gentle surf of the Gulf of Mexico. A rinsing shower makes it convenient to hit the pool for a swim or head back up to the condo for a quick lunch.

Would you like to enjoy to a casual lunch or dinner but want something close enough to walk? Try Bahama Bob’s, which is approximately an eight-minute walk (less than half a mile) from Crystal Shores West. You can dine both indoors and out, and fare here includes shrimp and fish entrees, po’ boys, burgers (one’s even topped with pineapple) and more.

A mile down the road, heading east toward Gulf Place leads to the iconic Hangout restaurant. Known for the Hangout Music Festival and regularly featuring live entertainment on its outdoor stage, the restaurant’s staff are very laid back and encourage silliness. In fact, it’s not unusual for diners of all ages to suddenly form a Conga line, dance on tables, play in a mountain of bubbles, climb a huge pile of sand or find other ways to goof off while waiting for their meal.

Near the Hangout is another icon of Gulf Shores lore, the Pink Pony Pub, where live music, nibbles and cold beverages are part of the regular routine. Kick back inside or out on the deck overlooking the Gulf.

A variety of surf gear and sundries shops along with other retailers are located near Gulf Place.
