Bayou La Batre lies along the Mississippi Sound on the Gulf of Mexico in south Alabama. We are a charming community steeped in Southern history and a heritage with a distinct French impression. Known in the late 1800s and early 1900s as a resort town with medicinal spring water, Bayou La Batre is now the Seafood Capital of Alabama.
You may have heard how we commemorate our fishing industry with annual events such as the Blessing of the Fleet and Taste of the Bayou. Come take a ride down scenic byway 188 as century old oaks graciously welcome you to our city, and in case you don't hear before you get here, we call home "By-luh-ba-tree."
