Recent Crystal Beach vacation rental reviews

We had a wonderful time at this beach house with our family of 4! We have 2 kids and it was great that there is a gate on the balcony so they can’t fall down the steps and the fenced area which was great since we brought our dog with us as well. Great location not far from the beaches stores and restaurants! We will definitely be back! Thank you for sharing this lovely beach home lots of memories were made!

Where Is Crystal Beach, TX?

Crystal Beach is a small beach community on the Bolivar Peninsula along the Gulf Coast of Texas. Separated from Galveston Island by a three-mile channel, the free 18-minute ferry ride is a fabulous opportunity to watch ships pass by, and you'll likely see a pod of resident dolphins swimming in your wake! Crystal Beach and nearby Gilchrist are a particular draw for guests looking for a beach escape surrounded by the rugged beauty of the natural landscape while still having access to urban attractions across the channel.

The Bolivar Peninsula

Guests pick Crystal Beach vacation rentals primarily for its access to the beautiful surroundings of Bolivar, including 27 miles of pristine beach on which you can cruise in your car, or on your bike. The mild climate and gentle waters make it a great place to take the kids for boogie boarding, fishing, and crabbing. Swimming is leisurely, and relaxing is a snap. 

Don't miss the historic Point Bolivar Lighthouse for a look at the island's history. Birdwatchers, bring your binoculars and plan a trip to the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, with over 34,000 acres of protected habitat set aside for Galveston Bay's wildlife. 

Things to Do in Crystal Beach, TX

Crystal Beach may have few high-rises, but it is still a resort destination with a home-grown feel. Book tee time at the Crystal Beach Community Golf Course, or visit the Fun Spot Waterslide for a little thrill with the kids!

Of course, you'll want to try some authentic Gulf Coast cuisine, offering fresh seafood and scrumptious barbecue. Try Steve's Landing Restaurant, or Stingaree Restaurant & Bar. Grab lunch to go at the Smoking Pig food cart, or make a picnic in your own Crystal Beach rental, then take it to the Fort Travis Seashore Park for an afternoon by The Gulf. 

Our Crystal Beach vacation rentals offer Gulf Coast travelers a different Texas experience: one of robust, natural beauty, quiet stretches of street, and miles of sand and water. Plan your perfect getaway today.
