1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We went here using the directions to perfection and there was nothing there! We did pass a place where there were people fishing dont know if that was it.

“Drive through birding”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Big Reef Nature Park is not a reef, but a few roads that border marsh land. I did not see any sign identifying the area as a park. The park is good for birding - with wading and shore birds. The best time to see birds is early or late in the day. There's really no walking area; it's viewed from your car. It's not the best place on Galveston for birding, but it's convenient if you're staying on the east end of the island and want a short trip.
