It would be very crowded in the summer. There was only a few visitor at the time we were here. It's a recreation place with the facilities such as shower, restroom, food, gift shop etc.

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.

parking is plentiful, bath house is a little dated but usable, stores for food and stuff you might have forgot. picnic tables in the shade off the sand and then theres the beach which is well maintained with lifeguard stations, umbrella and chair rental.
