Things to Do Near Your Galveston Beach Rental

Galveston Beaches 

We know you chose Galveston for its 32 miles of beaches! Build sandcastles, fly kites, surf or bodyboard, swim in the refreshing Gulf, work on your tan, comb the beach for shells & driftwood, or bring your favorite rod & reel and try your hand at surf fishing. It’s all just steps away when you book a beachfront vacation rental!

Swimming Pools 

These aquatic oases offer a great way to cool off or take a break from the salt & surf! Most neighborhood pools (like those at Diamond Beach, Sea Isle & Pointe West) are only open to guests staying in that area, but the Jamaica Beach pool welcomes the general public with a per person, per day fee. All Galveston pools are open seasonally, typically from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Really love the water? Look for a vacation rental with a private pool.

Fishing & Birding on Galveston Island 

Try your hand at fishing or bring your binoculars to experience some of the best birding on the Gulf! Most bay and canal vacation rentals include a place to tie up your favorite water toy — be it a fishing boat or jet ski — and there are multiple places to put in the water or buy fresh bait, like Waterman’s or the West End Marina. Be aware that most neighborhood HOA regulations prevent guests from parking trailers or boats at vacation rental homes. (We offer additional parking at our office.) Be sure to talk with your property manager about your options before heading down to the island.
