Welcome! As Mayor, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Town of Loxley’s website. I hope you will spend some time learning about us!
The most central community in Baldwin County, Loxley is the home of the county’s Strawberry Festival and gateway to the area’s other prime destinations. Every year, thousands of beach-goers travel through Loxley on their way to the lovely white sand beaches of Gulf Shores. Loxley also rests a few minutes east of the peaceful Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay and a short drive south of the county seat in Bay Minette. Our position next to I-10 provides easy access to Mobile and Pensacola, each less than an hour away. The Central Baldwin area has experienced a period of rapid growth over the course of the past two decades, and the number of visitors has increased as well. While Highway 59 has expanded over the years to accommodate the greater flow of traffic, Loxley remains a small town with a population of approximately 1,837 permanent residents (2016). Residents enjoy a relatively low cost of living and the slower pace small agricultural community has to offer. From the quiet, sleepy residential part of this small community to the fast paced business and light industrial areas, we know that there will be something that will show all who visit that we are the “biggest little town in Baldwin County” and that we are ”a town you will like.”
On behalf of the Town of Loxley, our representatives, and our citizens, thank you for your interest in our beautiful community. I hope you will have a chance to experience it!
