Pretty at sunset

We came here for a quick visit while in the area for a funeral. The sun was close to setting and it was just beautiful. The beach was very nice and clean.

Loved the family-friendly environment. The bech was quite and seemed to be enjoyed by all. I loved the fact you could drive your car on the beach in many places. Some families had fires on the beach in the evening. Just beautiful to see.

Clean, right on the beach, friendly owner, many families, pet friendly, we had a great time. In the evening we sat around a large propane fire pit and met a lot of different people. There were horseshoes and bean bag toss. Soon there will be a restaurant that looks over the beach. We would go back again.

Great place to walk the beach, enjoy the surroundings, watch dolphin, birds, surfers and people wind surfing.

There isn't much to do in Surfside and it's a pretty basic beach at that. But it's safe, easy to get to from Houston, and still the beach.

It is nice that you can drive out on the beach. Sometimes the trash pickup is not all that it could be.

Beach Resort Services is a must!!! Rent a beach home from them and get front row if possible. We have used them 4 times and their homes are great and they are very attentive.
