    Search & Rescue

    A Life Saving Station authorized by congress opened here in 1880 and later became the US Coast Guard Station. There is an 82 foot cutter that operates from here covering the Gulf from Freeport to Brownsville, and four search and rescue boats also operating from here.
    Visitors usually can visit the center and the boasts if they are at the center.

    Private Island

    Jetty

    You might want to go over to St Jo's for 1/2 a day.
    San Jose Island is a private island, however, the area near the jetty and the beach is open to the public.
    It is accessible by boat, no facilities, just miles of sand and an uncrowded beach.
    It takes about 15 minutes by jetty boat to get over there.
    Be sure to take something to drink and plenty of sunscreen.

    Mustang Island Beach solitude

    Almost an overwhelming plethora of birding on the sea shore ! Through the week take a walk in almost solitude down the endless miles of beach.
