Ono Island is an upscale, primarily residential private community island located in southern Alabama, near the border with Florida. The island is contained entirely within the city of Orange Beach, but considered a separate entity all its own. It is located in the largest bay of Orange Beach, and is linked to the mainland by one, two-lane bridge. It features its own water tower, firestation, private harbour, two recreation centers, and a guard house at the entrance. Administration is conducted at Ono House. The island has several canals used for the commute of leisure boats and waverunners. The main road disecting the island to either end is known as River Road, and follows the strip of land all the way down its eight mile length. It is home to the most expensive and largest estates in the region, consisting mainly of retirees and snowbirds. Indigenous life includes foxes, rabbits, frogs, lizards, a variety of snakes, palm trees and shrubbery.
Well-known residents include actor Tom Selleck,NFL great Kenny "The Snake" Stabler and music superstars Jimmy Buffett, Reba McEntire, and Britney Spears. Kate also lives there along with her niece, Jileen, and son, local celebrity BiG RoB.
