Beach
Port Aransas Beach boasts over 29 km (18 mi) of uninterrupted shoreline, warm Gulf waters, and soft white sand. Known primarily for its fishing opportunities and pristine beaches, the area also offers some of the best surfing spots in Texas. Pick up a souvenir T-shirt and head down to the restaurants that line the beachfront for some freshly boiled shrimp and crab, some of the many tasty local delicacies. With a beach-parking permit obtained from a local grocery store, you can drive along the beach and set up camp.
