The difference is unmistakable. The Village of Tannin, a thoughtfully planned beach community, is already a picturesque centerpiece for the Alabama gulf coast.
While convenient to the many amenities of the surrounding cities of Orange Beach, Gulf Shores and Pensacola Florida, Tannin appears to be in a distinctly separate world surrounded by ancient weathered oak trees, glassy ponds, native carpets of reindeer moss and masses of fragrant rosemary. Located between the sparkling beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the enchanted forest of a large state park, Tannin has been meticulously designed to embellish what nature has so generously provided.
Tannin is a true New Urban community that is based on the principals of traditional neighborhood design. Tannin accommodates the automobile yet is designed on a pedestrian scale where walking and speaking distances prevail.
One can enjoy the simple act of leisurely walking down the street – not for the arduous task of exercise but for the sheer pleasure of the experiences that you will encounter along the way. With careful attention to the design of the public realm, the streets become a more enjoyable and safer place for people to walk or bicycle.
Meaningful destinations such as nearby stores and civic buildings are scattered throughout the village and provide familiar landmarks for pedestrians. The post office, the pool, the beach or the Town Center with its stores –the distance between destinations is no more than an easy five minute walk. Walking through the village also gives residents the opportunity to encounter and visit with other villagers along the way.
Gulf State Park’s Hugh S. Branyon Back Country Trail Complex is near by and consists of fifteen trails among six distinct ecosystems that make up more than 25 miles of paved trails within the 6180 acres of land inside the park. The trail winds through the park and connects both of the cities of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Locals and visitors can enjoy even more areas for biking, jogging, walking, skating, rock climbing, wildlife watching, plant and tree identification, photography and connecting to nature.

The Alabama Gulf Coast is warmed by sunshine, history, culture and unspoiled natural beauty. You’ll find 32 miles of sugar-white sand beaches made almost entirely of fine, quartz grains washed down from the Appalachian Mountains thousands of years ago. Once you visit the Gulf Coast area of Baldwin County, you quickly realize these are some of the finest beaches in the world, and one of America’s hidden gem locations. You’ll yearn to return year after year to feel the sand between your toes, splash around in the turquoise water, smell the salty air and admire the jaw-dropping sunsets of Orange Beach, Alabama.
Families with kids of all ages love to spend time here! Alabama's Gulf Coast has beaches with miles of sugar white sand, clean waves lapping and coastal breezes in the air. Beyond the beach, you’ll find so much more to see and do. Amusement parks, bicycle trails, historic sites and shopping are only the beginning. Excellent Rental Projections
Perfect L Subtly patterned brick streets make walking the preferred mode of transportation. On street parking contributes to the feel of streets being “enclosed” and add greatly to the security of children playing in front yards. Streetlights are built to “human scale” and designed to preserve the view of the night sky instead of towering above the roads with blinding light. Streets often end in a “visual terminus”, a place where the eye stops and registers a memorable vision such as a monument, a pleasant curve or a significant landscape. Building height, setbacks and spacing define the streets, squares and open areas that comprise the community’s public realm. The uses of buildings and their relationships to each other affect the activity and vitality of the Tannin community.
