The stretch of Port A beach that we stayed on was gorgeous: clean, wide, and well-maintained. Seriously beautiful. So happy to have a go-to beach in Texas that isn't trashed (*cough* Galveston *cough*)

If youve been to Florida youve seen better beaches, but this isnt too bad. Its been worse in past years with the seaweed and tar. Lots of shells to step through getting in the water.

Not sure about that. It’s mostly a great natural beach front. You can park your car up extremely close though to the sand

They were pretty non-existant 2 weeks ago. I asked your question to a friend that lives there and the beach is still jelly free!
