“BEAUTIFUL”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Lovely beach; sea like a bath. Easy to park on the road. Car parks further down expensive. Good facilities. Look for the memorial to the 1900 hurricane.

“Average Beach”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Average beach at its best. Love the area to walk around, but some areas required attention due to trash

“Beautiful walk along the beach”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This was my first visit to the Gulf of Mexico and I was amazed at how warm the water was. We walked for many miles on the warm sand just on the edge of the water. The breeze was cooling as the day was 30 degrees celcius.

“The Seawall in Galveston, TX”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

What to say about the Seawall! The Seawall is awesome! Make sure you wear good shoes and also bring a towel! The Seawall protects the island of Galveston from the Gulf you can go down onto the beach from several places on the Seawall and walk along the beach or even get in the water! Love the Granite Slabs there also that you can lay down on!

“This is no beach!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

If you've seen a beach before you can skip this one - it is not anything special. Head instead to The Strand or to do some exploring downtown where you can find some great local restaurants, antique shops and unique shopping. The Seawall will show you the sea, and some mostly run-down hotels, chain restaurants, and an amusement park (like any other) over the water (Paradise Pier). There is so much more to Galveston - be sure this is not your only stop!
