Enjoy this video of the West Beach area taken from Crystal Shores West.

With beaches closed until April 17, please allow us to bring our backyard into your backyard with this brief daily video highlighting the relaxing sights and sounds of Alabama’s Gulf Coast beaches.

Be sure to turn on your sound so you can hear the breezes blow, the waves wash in and the birds overhead.

As soon as the beaches reopen and it's safe to return, this and more will be waiting for you.

Tune in to this page or our Facebook page regularly for updated #YourDailyFive videos showcasing the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast.
