Fodor's Review

The French name Bon Secour means "safe harbor," which these 7,000 acres provide for migratory birds, nesting sea turtles, the endangered Alabama beach mouse, and people seeking tranquil hours. Wild dunes still exist along what is one of the Alabama coast’s largest undeveloped areas. Hiking trails, ranging from 1 to more than 4 miles, wind through dunes, swales, wetlands, maritime forests, and scrub habitats where you might see foxes, coyotes, armadillos, and hummingbirds.
