Things to do in Crystal Beach, Texas


Create memories at this perfect beach house along the Bolivar Peninsula sandy beaches. You can rent a golf cart for a day or week and drive up and down the shore for a fun joy ride.  You can also build a fire on the beach! Such a fun place to enjoy family time.

Things to do

There are two water parks in town, Fun Town Water Park and Fun Spot Water Slide.  Stingray Marina is just a short drive and is a fun place to watch the water and see all the boats.  There is also a great seafood restaurant there!  The Golf Range is a perfect place to play some putt putt and have a yummy drink and bar food. Dannay's Donuts has fresh donuts and lunch.  The Big Store is super close and is the main grocery store and a fun place just to walk around and shop! And if you want to take a day trip to Galveston Island the ferry is a fifteen to twenty minute drive that will take you over there.
