Tripsavvy: The Best Beaches in Texas

Texas has over 350 miles of beaches and fun coastal communities to explore. While you won’t find sugar-white sand and clear turquoise water here, appreciate these Gulf Coast beaches on their own, and don’t try to compare them to Florida or the Caribbean. The brownish-blue water is impacted by silt from the Mississippi River but is safe for swimming.

Some of these Texas beaches are A+ spots for a family beach day, while others cater to water sports enthusiasts or wildlife and nature lovers. With nearly year-round mild weather, the beaches of the Lone Star State are popular 365 days a year, although spring break (March-April) and summers will see the heaviest crowds.
