“Ahh, finally a wonderful beach in Texas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

There's a reason this beach gets high ratings! Clean and did I say clean? Rockport beach sets the bar for the rest of the coastal areas of Texas! Enjoy this wonderful spot for a carefree day in the sun! (We were here in the Winter and did not get into the water, so I am only reviewing based on the land area and restrooms etc.) It is worth the small entrance fee- and the water seems calm enough for little ones..

“Good Investment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

We feel the 10 bucks for a year's pass to be one of the good investments while we're in Rockport for one to three months, particularly for birdwatchers or those who enjoy the outdoors. You see people with binoculars, jogging gear, parasails, kites, picnic items, boats and fishing rigs. There's a pier where you can get out over the water or cast a lure or just sit and watch waves and there's a bird watching platform plus pavilions that can host bigger gatherings and there's a nice sand beach.

Roger,

We thank you for your kind review. I will make sure our park staff have an opportunity to read your comments. A trip to the beach this time of year can be invigorating and uplifting with the clear, crisp mornings, and in the afternoon enjoy the warm sun on your face as you watch the water, white pelicans, and perhaps a dolphin or two---if you can stay awake!
