  • Porretto Beach was a huge disappointment. It was dirty and disorganized, cluttered by junk, ropes, plastic barrels, etc. Bad parking. Go anywhere else!  more »

  • Private Property that will probably become high rise condos blocking beach access to the local residence. Generally a quiet spot with lots of wild flowers and beach plants.
  • Everything was fine that day. Sun, warm breath, silky sand, clear sky, soft swash, life guard on duty.
  • The beach here has its own parking. You can also take a helicopter ride at this location too. The beach is beautiful.
  • The beach is not the beach that you will want to put your feet in... Lots of flys, smells a lot because of seaweeds :( I would come here because this was the only option for me for a beach.
  • It was a nice walk along the beach and we enjoyed our visit.

Where to stay in Galveston

When choosing accommodations in Galveston, remember that the closer you stay to the water, the more you are likely to pay. Top prices usually get you a spacious room packed with modern amenities plus sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico. You can save a bundle by staying away from the city's popular beachfront. If your home away from home is on wheels, consider one of Galveston's RV parks and resorts.
