Like West Beach, this little section of beach has drive-on-the-beach access. The public beach is the area of sand from the vegetation line to the water’s edge. (North of the vegetation line is private property.)
We splashed, played, grabbed snacks and repeated. When we had had enough sun, we packed up and drove off.
On the way home, we took a very scenic route down San Louis Pass/Bluewater Highway all the way to Surfside (and then north on 332/288 to Houston). This was a beautiful way to go, with water on both sides, if you have the time!
