Love coming to enjoy the sun here. Swing sets are nice for little ones. The beach is small but perfect.

Place is very big and the best NO charge for parking, you can park, walk and have a pic nic with your family, maybe bring some ball and play or just relax, no many people around, perfect for a great walk aside the ocean.

I recently attended a wedding at this beautiful waterfront venue. This hidden gem would accommodate anyone's venue needs. The main reception room is an octagon of floor to ceiling windows, with a huge dance floor in the middle. They have a huge deck overlooking the water, great for ceremonies. Food and service were fantastic.

To crowded. To many who are not local. The playground is good and during season the water is good. Major Dan will go to the city local park.

Very beautiful and clean beach area. Good place to take your family for a picnic or swim or just spend the day. However, it gets very crowded on the weekends. But the weekday is a good time to go.

This is by far the best place in LaPorte to enjoy a sunrise or do a little bird watching. My favorite place to fly kites and have picnics.

This is the 2nd time we have been here. Last time the car park was quite full but this time it was emptier. Nice beach and very relaxing. Coming from N Houston it is easier to get to than Galveston and a reasonable journey if you want to spend time at beach. We went to Kemah first then here afterwards,... More

Sylvan Beach is a fun place to visit if you don't want to go all the way to Galveston, Sylvan Beach has fun attractions for all ages you can grill, skate board, swim,play on the sand, or just simply sit and relax and watch the kids play, very relaxing.
