The thriving coastal community of Orange Beach, Alabama enjoys a solid reputation among vacationers as one of the most beautiful areas along Alabama’s Emerald Coast. The sands along the coast are made out of eroded quartz crystals that washed down from the Appalachian Mountains, giving them that distinctive snow-white color. People from all over the world come to dig their toes into the sand, play in the warm waters, go fishing in Perdido Pass, and enjoy a stay in some of the city’s most famous luxury condominiums.
Orange Beach sits between Gulf Shores, Alabama and Perdido Key, Florida. This central location is part of what makes Orange Beach such a popular choice for both vacationers and home buyers. Vacationers enjoy being able to reach some of this area’s best attractions quickly and easily and home buyers enjoy being in the heart of the action. Much of Orange Beach sits right on the water, whether it’s the Old River, Bayou St. John, Cotton Bayou, or Terry Cove. With so much water-frontage, it’s easy to see why this place has such a great reputation among boaters and fishing enthusiasts. Although there are a number of Gulf-front condominiums, many people choose some of the other waterfront condos, like The Pass or The Moorings, because many of them offer onsite marinas and boat slips. When buying a home in the area, Ono Island is at the top of everyone’s list. This exclusive community has both waterfront and inland homes, a community marina, and many of the homes have private boat slips.
Pelican Pointe is a popular condo in the area with a long reputation for fantastic amenities and spectacular views of the area, especially from the wrap-around balconies on the corner units. Pelican Pointe is an older building, but the upside to that is that it’s had twenty years to solidify its place as one of the most reliable and popular destinations that visitors come back to year after year. As far as investing goes, Pelican Pointe is a solid choice. Some similar area condos include Tidewater and White Caps.
