I hope that you’ll find great value in this resource. Sure, you could find information on Orange Beach all over the web, but here you won’t have to sift through dozens of pages and spend countless hours trying to find what you want. So, let’s get moving!

Orange Beach Facts and Figures

I know, reading over the facts and figures of a city can be uneventful so let’s get them out of the way so we can get to the fun stuff. They are important though, at least for only the next few minutes.

  • Population: 5,850Orange Beach Logo
  • Total Area: 15.95 square miles (1.25% of that is water)

Population growth has been strong with an increase of 54.6% increase since 2000. While you will see a lot of tourists during the hot season, you’ll find that Orange Beach gives you the feeling of a low-keyed, laid-back coastal town.

Orange Beach is the southeastern-most city in Orange Beach and lies between Gulf Shores and Florida. You’ll read more about traveling around the city in the Easy Commute section below. You can see that, land-wise, the city isn’t very big at all but many of the residents of Orange Beach get to enjoy beautiful water views every day.

In addition to the Gulf of Mexico, here are the other bodies of water that lie near Orange Beach:

  • Intracoastal Waterway
  • Wolf Bay
  • Ingram Bayou

Orange Beach Niche Score

For some reason, crime is “Not Given” in Niche’s score, but I’ll go more into that in the Public Safety section below.

Here are a couple of reviews taken from Niche.com:

Orange Beach Review


Orange Beach Review

Interesting Facts & Accolades

  • Orange Beach got its name from large citrus groves that once grew here prior to 1926. The crops eventually died out due to several hard freezes and tainted seedlings brought in by a salesman.
  • The 112-foot-tall ferris wheel at The Wharf is the largest in the southeast.
  • Our beautiful white beaches were made from quartz that has filtered down from the Appalachian Mountains over 1,000 years ago.
  • There are 4 islands just north of Perdido Pass: Bird Island, Gilchrist Island, Robinson Island, and Walker Island. There’s nothing there but vegetation and sand, providing boaters and jet skiers a great place to stop to relax a little.

Orange Beach Strong Economy and Jobs

Last year, over 6.3 million people visited the beach, spending about $4.2 billion before leaving. That’s pretty powerful!

Orange Beach Thriving Community

Although Orange Beach is a small city, it’s big on appeal.  With only a little over 5,000 full-time residents, Orange Beach continues to grow as a community. I think for a community to thrive there has to be a balance of livability, low crime rates, a strong economy, great schools, entertainment, planning, and development. Many of these factors are being covered in this article.

With the massive amount of tourism that flows into the city every year, Orange Beach does a great job at maintaining this balance for its residents. 

One of the ways that Orange Beach shows a strong sense of community is how business is incorporated throughout the city. You’ll find very few national fast-food chains here with most of the restaurants being owned and operated by the locals. 

There are a couple of strip shopping centers here with grocery stores, but other than a few locally owned shops, Orange Beach is not known as the shopping mecca of the south. That’s okay though. Orange Beach tries hard to cater to its residents, as well as take care of the many tourists who visit the area all year long.  

Don’t get me wrong though. You’re not going to be deprived if you need a new bathing suit or patio set. You just won’t see a McDonald’s on every corner. One of the ways that Orange Beach has excelled in creating a thriving community is The Wharf . 

The Wharf

Orange Beach The Wharf

The largest shopping district of Orange Beach can be found at The Wharf, located at the intersection of the Foley Beach Expressway and Canal Rd. This is quite an impressive place to visit and stay. I say “stay” because The Wharf is like a city within the city. You not only have dozens of cool shops and restaurants to visit, but you also will find a large condo community at The Wharf offering well-appointed condos with great water views. Whether you want to live here full-time or just visit for the week, you should definitely look into this great community.

Please visit the link above to find a full write-up on what The Wharf has to offer.

Quality of Life

I believe Orange Beach has created balance by taking into account residential living, outdoor activities, a strong economy based on tourism, and quality of life.

Areavibes gives Orange Beach a Livability Ranking of 74, which is much higher than the rest of the state and the US

Orange Beach Livability Ranking

The Beach

Our beautiful beach and teal-green waters of the Gulf will forever draw people to our little area in lower Alabama. The very nature of it all is a magnet for not only those who are visiting us for a short time but mainly for the residents who call Orange Beach their home. That’s why the beach has to be included in why Orange Beach is a thriving community.

Orange Beach Weather and Climate

As a Realtor, I work with people all the time who are moving to Orange Beach and the surrounding area, mainly because of the weather. I just starting working with a new couple from Madison, Wisconsin who are typical “snowbirds”. They spend the winters here to get away from the brutal cold back home. After so many years of doing this, many folks decide to make the move. This happens all of the time.

During the middle of the summer, it does get pretty humid, but most people get used to or just stay inside during the middle of the day. The upside is that 9 to 10 months of the year are quite pleasant.

The “hot season” lasts from May 27th through September 26th with a daily average high of 84 degrees. The hottest day of the year is July 23rd with an average temperature of 89 degrees.

The “cool season” lasts from December 4th through March 5th, with a daily average high of 67 degrees. The coldest day of the year is January 29th, with an average low of 44 degrees.

Orange Beach Average Temperature

Source: Weatherspark

Orange Beach gets its share of precipitation to cool things down in the summer, but typically we have what’s called “pop-up” showers. Clouds will form around early afternoon, it will rain for about 20 minutes, and then it will be sunny again.

Although we get rain throughout the year, the heaviest accumulation is the 31-day period around July 21st. The dryest time of year falls around October 21st.

Orange Beach Public Safety

For the past 8 years, violent crime and property crime has been on the decline in Orange Beach.

Orange Beach Police

The beach is the main attraction of lower Alabama, but it can be dangerous. For your protection, Orange Beach and Gulf Shores post flags at the beach, alerting people who want to go into the Gulf. 

Here’s a description of the warning flags:

  • Double Red – Water is closed to the public.
  • Single Red – High surf, strong currents
  • Single Yellow – Moderate surf and conditions
  • Single Green – Calm conditions but stay alert
  • Single Purple – Dangerous sea life present
