Located in southwest Texas, Port Aransas is a charming beach town with vacation rentals scattered along the Gulf of Mexico and Aransas and Corpus Christi Bays.
The only established town on Mustang Island, one of the longest barrier islands along the Texas coast, Port Aransas is home to nearly 30 kilometres of beaches. Popular activities include sunbathing, sandcastle building, beach combing, as well as swimming, paddling, surfing, windsurfing, and kite boarding in the Gulf rollers. Landlubbers will enjoy hiking and cycling at Mustang Island State Park, and bird viewing and wildlife watching at Aransas National Wildlife Refuge and the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trails. Golfing enthusiasts will be well served at Newport Dunes Golf Club, a premium course. Port Aransas also provides angling opportunities off of public piers, in bays and channels, and on deep-sea excursions, and is home to over a dozen fishing tournaments each year. With historic landmarks and a number of eateries, art galleries, clothing boutiques, and gift shops, there’s no shortage of places to retire to following a day out on the water or trails.
Port Aransas offers an array of natural, outdoors, and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is easily accessible from Corpus Christi and its International Airport.+ More
