Perdido Beach Resort

Tennis, pool or the beach? Your one-stop shop for coastal entertainment. Consider Perdido Beach Resort a tropical playground for all ages. Located between Gulf Shores, Ala., and Perdido Key, Fla., this hulking, 346-room resort hugs a prime slice of white-sand beach, with four tennis courts, an impressive fitness center and a giant outdoor pool. Jump into a game of beach volleyball or ask the concierge to plan your day — the staff can arrange everything from tee times to scuba dives. The on-site Cafe Palm Breeze puts out a good breakfast buffet, while the other on-site restaurant, Voyagers, serves locally sourced dinners.
