Hidden Gem on the Gulf Coast
One of the best features of Kiva Dunes Resort is perhaps its most natural, the sugar-white beaches that make up its 3,000 ft of private beachfront. The unique composition of sand along the Alabama Gulf Coast made-up of millions of tiny granules of white quartz – allows the vacation beaches found at Kiva Dunes to remain soft and pleasant, where other North American vacation hotspots often feature sand that is coarse, rocky, and unpleasant to the skin.
This unique composition found in Gulf Coast sand, also contributes to the bright, crystalline water found all along our beaches. Where the water is clear enough to observe all manner of sea-life mere feet from shore! Because of this, the waters of the Gulf of Mexico tend to be clearer than that of other North American tourist destinations, where higher concentrations of heavy minerals and shore runoff tend to result in dark, murkier water. These are not the beaches found at Kiva!
Here, the entire length of our beachfront is made of ultra-fine white-quartz sand unique to the Gulf Coast. At Kiva, the sand glitters in direct sunlight, the length of our private shoreline lapped in a thin sheath of turquoise water.
The natural beauty of the shoreline at Kiva also provides another key feature – complete privacy. With the entire 3,000 ft length of our beach access lined by hills of rolling white dunes, topped in picturesque expanses of native sea-oats, beach-goers at Kiva can breathe easy, and allow themselves to truly relax.
Enjoying our picturesque beach-front expanse, and awe-inspiring vacation atmosphere are essential to any Kiva experience – so pull up your Kiva lounger, dig your toes in, and experience your Kiva!
