  • Well, this trip definitely solidified my opinion drive on beaches being logically a bad choice. People that can't afford a beach towel or a oil change show up to do whatever they want to do and leave ...  more »
  • Since the AIA Sand Castle Competition was in town during our trip, we decided to visit this beach for the day. It was extremely crowded due to the competition, and the wait to get in was about an hour...  more »
  • We visit East Beach every year for the AIA Sandcastle Competition. If you've never been before it's definitely worth the trip. Parking is $10 and these sandcastles are incredible!  more »

  • My favorite beach, with room for long walks, bird sanctuary, you can watch the ships come in, have watched dolphins there, large beach lots of pay and free parking, best showers on the beach. Gift shops, munchy shops. Great place for o spend the day!!!!!
  • Parking is free (May 16) the place was basically empty, it felt like a private beach. The ships going to/from Houston pass by and become entertainment. Great place to spend a day.
  • So nice here, I only wish Ashley was her with me she is so sweet .Just meet her but I like her a lot Crazy I know...
  • Very crowded - however, it was a holiday weekend. Fairly clean & easy to get to.
  • Very Clean and Calm Beach. Very few people wander this far from the downtown areas of Galveston so its always peaceful here.
