About Walker Island

Walker Island Orange Beach Info

Walker Island Orange Beach AL

Walker Island was purchased by the city of Orange Beach, AL in 2013. The island was purchased in an effort to preserve the natural flora and fauna of the island, which has become a popular draw for boaters in recent years. 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, making it less of a day-trip destination, and more of a scenic stop!
