Beautiful!

Clean, friendly, laid back. I will be back soon! Next time I plan to go fishing. Oh, the gulls on the ferry were comical to watch.

It's so beautiful and peaceful. A wonderful place to take the kids and fun for them to play. My kids had a blast and had fun making sand castles and playing in the sand

Spent a few hours at beach today it was nice and the beach was clean . The beach was not crowded and the police were out patrolling. If I could say one thing that needs improvement would be the porter pots need to be serviced better .

Went to Port Aransas Beach for my birthday. Had a wonderful time. Very clean. Waves were good for boogeyboarding. Just watch out for the jellyfish. Beach was very clean. People were just out there for a great time. Saw quite a few weddings at sunset. Fun time!

For a Texas beach this is a good one. The town of Port A has many shops and restaurants. We go down 2-3 times per year.

We started at the Jetty by the shipping channel & walked a bit on the breakwall. It was mixed with people fishing & those with cell phones hoping to get a picture of sea turtles, dolphins, school of fish swimming past or the numerous birds flying around.

In the sun or by moonlight the beach is a lovely place to be. Love the clean beaches and in some places being able to park up close to the water.
