    Galveston Beaches

    Galveston, since it is an island, has lots of beaches with the sand and surf to play in. One of the best is East Beach. For those who like to drink a bit of alcohol, it is actually legal here as opposed to most beaches (just don't have it in glass containers). There are also nice beaches all along the seawall that faces the Gulf of Mexico.

    East Beach

    Touted as Galveston's "party beach", East Beach is the site of numerous festivals, parties, concerts, and special events. Over the course of the long Texas summers, the beach here can get packed, as it is one of the few beaches on the island that cars can drive along. It is also one of the few major beaches that drinking alcohol is allowed, which automatically draws many partygoers from all around. During the winter months and many week days, the beach is almost practically deserted, but this is in stark contrast to the gaggles of people here in the summer. Each Beach is located at the very eastern point of the island, and for vehicles there are fees for entrance.
