Named Bayous, Bays, and Coves in coastal Alabama

An ACF Board member created a list of named bays in coastal Alabama which was

one of the inspirations for our Coastal IQ program! If you have not already tested

your knowledge about our state's coastal resources, please click the following logo:


The following is a list of 58 bayous, bays, and coves in coastal Alabama. Click on the names to see maps and to get more information such as GPS coordinates, nearby cities, points of interests, and historical weather! (If you know of other places not listed, please email and provide the map link as well.)

Since 1993, the Alabama Coastal Foundation (ACF) has worked to promote a culture where environmental decisions are based on an accurate understanding of the underlying science, the dissemination of factual information, and the engagement of government, industry and citizens to find solutions to Alabama's coastal environmental challenges. We bring that vision into reality through our inclusive environmental stewardship approach.

ACF makes it easy for you to connect to your coast! Keep up to date on events and opportunities to improve and protect Alabama's precious coastal environment.
