Spanish Grant & Bermuda Beach
Spanish Grant and Bermuda Beach are West End developments approximately 7 miles west of 61st Street and 3 miles east of Galveston Island State Park. Both include homes that are older than most other bay and beach houses in Galveston. Bermuda Beach, for example, dates back to 1957, and the majority of the houses in Spanish Grant were built before 1989.
Residences in Spanish Grant range in size from 950 to 3,800 square feet. The development includes properties on both sides of FM 3005, on Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico beachfront. Most are on quarter-acre lots, and the majority of lots on the bay side surround canals that give boaters direct access to Galveston Bay.
Bermuda Beach is an assortment of Galveston beach houses directly west of Spanish Grant’s beach section. Houses here are smaller, ranging from fewer than 800 to around 3,700 square feet, with an average of 1,400 square feet.
Nature is among the main attractions of Bermuda Beach and Spanish Grant. The nearby state park has an abundance of walking and kayaking trails, undeveloped wetlands surround the area, and Laffite’s Cove Nature Society’s nature preserve is a well-known spot for birding.
Groceries, restaurants and gas are within 3 miles.
Vacation rentals are permitted in both Spanish Grant and Bermuda Beach, and both have active homeowners associations overseeing neighborhood rules and policies.
Bay and beach houses for sale in Galveston’s Spanish Grant and Bermuda Beach developments range in price from the $200,000s to $1 million.
