Texas has a reputation as being the place where the Old West begins. So it’s easy to understand why some people are surprised to find more than 600 miles of sparkling coastline here. We’re also home to the longest undeveloped barrier island in the world. It’s true. So if you’re looking for a stretch of beach to soak up the sun and the surf, we have a “little” room for you here.
Not all of the colorful characters along the Texas coast wear sunscreen or play Frisbee. Texas is the number one bird-watching destination in the nation. And since most of our 600 bird species can be spotted along the coast, this is the place to find many birds of another color. Of course, spectacular lush land and seascapes are abundant, while playful bottlenose dolphins and sea turtles appear now and then to entertain our guests as well.
Some parts of Texas are dry, but where it’s wet, we make a big splash. From jet skiing, sea kayaking, sailing,and snorkeling to tremendous game fishing, there are endless ways to soak up the fun here. Then there are singular experiences like a horseback ride along a beautiful beach that you’ll remember forever.
