Walker Island

Walker Island was also purchased by the city of Orange Beach in 2013 in an effort to preserve the natural flora and fauna of the island, which has become a popular draw for boaters. Grass beds surround the island and house a large number of marine species including shrimp, crabs, and all sorts of fish popular to the local commercial and recreational fishing industry.  Walker Island is accessible to the public by paddleboard, kayak, or boat. While Walker Island is visually stunning and home to a large variety of sea birds and other animal life, it is much smaller than its island neighbors.
