The water is fairly shallow, but there are no life guards. There are covered picnic tables and portapotties spaced out along the beach. You see lots of families. The major Holidays get supermega crowds but most of the warm months are moderate crowds. There are a few eating establishments with in walking distance, but most peole bring picnic food.

The Village of Surside does a good job of keeping the beach free of debris and patroling the beach to give you a feeling of security--hence the small entrence fee required , the permit is good for one year. There are STRICT laws about glass containers and disturbing the old christmas trees used for sand replishments--The police WILL issue citations!

Another good idea is to bring along a plastic bottle of table vinegar--All Texas beaches seem to have a lot of washed up jelly fish. We use the vinegar to ease the occasional encounter.

At southern end is Jetty park operated by Brazoria County P&R, with picnic areas, restrooms and a trail plus kids playground. Bring your binoculars, dolphins have been spoted at the end of the jetty. Optomistic surfers also come to use the jetty's surf. You may walk the jetty, toss a line from the rocks, or just watch the large ships come and go.
