Perdido Beach is a town located on the northern shore of Perdido Bay, between the mouths of Soldier Creek and Palmetto Creek in Baldwin County, Alabama, United States. In an April 2009 plebiscite, over 60% of local voters supported incorporation as a town. On June 10, 2009, Baldwin County Probate Judge Adrian Johns issued an order which incorporated the area as a town. The first municipal elections, in which the mayor and town council will be elected, were scheduled for the fall of 2009. As of the 2010 census, the town had a population of 581.

Perdido Beach is part of the Daphne-Fairhope-Foley metropolitan area.


There has been tremendous growth in Baldwin County in recent years, particularly southern Baldwin County. Several of the coastal cities have been eyeing the northern shore of Perdido and Wolf Bays for many years, including Perdido Beach. Neighboring Orange Beach has gone so far as to buy property and make plans for a private bridge connecting to a vast amount of undeveloped land on the northern shore. Spurred by the prospect of annexation into Orange Beach, the Perdido Beach Property Owners and Residents Association began laying the groundwork for an incorporation referendum in early 2008. On April 21, 2009, the residents of the community voted to incorporate, becoming Baldwin County’s fourteenth municipality.
