One of the best beaches in Galveston. Huge parking lot for this beach. Usually go there to spend the whole afternoon. Great place to spend time with friends and family. The beach is clean and easily accessible. The pleasure pier is close by.

I like the safety of the life guards. I also like the fact that there are restrooms,showers, a variety store that sells sundries and you can also grab a burger and frozen ice. The one thing I dislike is that they are allowed to play...More
