Good beach!

The beach is very clean...no trash or seaweed...I hoped the water would have been a bit more clear, but overall...I would recommend it and would go back!

I really was pleased with how often the portable toilets were being cleaned and trash cans emptied. It looked like the water had cleared up from the mishap with the storms. The kids loved playing on... More

I loved the Port Aransas beach. The beach area was clean, and there were a lot of little pebbles and shells.

We went on a Friday and a Saturday. Was definitely busier on Saturday, but still never felt really crowded. No real seaweed problem. Only saw one jellyfish. The beach was clean of trash. The public bathrooms and shower area were clean. The beach is great for families with little ones.. you can walk a LONG way out without getting more... More

Some sand dollars. A little boy found a whole one. I only found pieces of one. We rented a golf cart... More

This was the best beach I've ever been to. My husband and I went for our honeymoon. The beach front is very large! They allow camping and camp fires too! My husband and I cuddled up near the water (which was sea weed free) and watched the giant stars.

Beach is clean and well maintained. No seaweed this year but lots of sun, water and waves. Not much shelling on the beach buts of sand to build sand castles. Plenty of porta potties along the beach road.

This is our quick weekend get-a-way spot. We prefer this to Corpus, not that much further and a little nicer beach.
