Great for a morning walk and experiencing a great beach! If you can time your visit to go on the Ranger guided beach walk, you will learn a lot. I did, and I've lived at the North end of the island for 21 years. This...More

On the only National Seashore in the US this is a beautiful place where you can learn so much about our seashore. If you can, try and make it to one of the turtle releases. Very educational.

Absolutely the best beach in Texas. It’s a drive in beach with 60 Miles of beautiful sand and water. We had a great trip down driving it with friends.

A beautiful beach with no commercial places in sight. Campgrounds and parking lots. I really recommend sticking to the paved roads and parking lots unless you know how to drive on sand and respect the tides. A great place to watch the sunrise and sunset.
