While most people don’t think of beaches when they think of Texas, those same people might be surprised to learn just how amazing some of the beach destinations in our state truly are! There are various reasons to explore the Texas Gulf Coast area, but the biggest one we can think of is to get some rest and relaxation at a beautiful beach. And once you find a great beach, chances are good the whole world has found it, and you need to fight for a few square feet to place your towel and belongings. Not so in these cases, where solitude and even wildlife sometimes abound. Out of 350 miles of Texas coastline, here are three semi-secluded Texas dream beaches you can find your bliss at.

San José Island

A private barrier island on the southernmost portion of Arkansas Bay, San José Island is a getaway beach destination unlike any other. Its access is limited to jetty boats and ferries, and therefore traffic is practically a non-issue. With that comes the additional plus of feeling like you escaped the lower 48 states completely, never mind just Texas! Shelling, fishing, and birding are great things to do here, but you may simply want to pack some food, pack the sun shade and beach towels, and camp out in the sand while you lull your cares away with some beach time. Be sure you catch the last ferry, however, because there aren’t accommodations on the Island.

Home to under 500 residents, the town of Surfside is another quiet Texas beach destination on the coast for those looking to get away from the hubbub of nearby Galveston. It’s also known for being less clogged with seaweed, and a little bit cleaner than those found in Galveston. Just one hour’s drive from Houston, it’s easily accessible for those wanting to take the trip.
