Tucked between Mustang Island and the Corpus Christi Channel, Port Aransas offers the best of the Texas Coast – all in one location. Spend sun-soaked days lounging at the beach, or get adventurous with surfing, jet skiing, kayaking and more. But perhaps more than anything, Port A means fishing. The summer months bring fishing tournaments while surf fishing, bay fishing and deep-sea charters are on offer year round.

But life here doesn’t just revolve around the water. If birding is your thing, Port A boasts six birding sites on the Great Texas Birding Trail and offers more than 300 species to see. Or discover San Jose Island, an undisturbed, undeveloped haven for nature enthusiasts and seashell collectors alike. Ferries and jetty boats offer regular departures to this true natural wonder.

Looking to treat yourself? Spend an afternoon exploring the many specialty boutiques, galleries and restaurants of downtown Port A. Then top it off with a breathtaking sunset and a taste of the island’s exciting nightlife.

Along all 18 miles of Mustang Island, you’ll find an abundance of natural beauty and adventure just waiting to be discovered. Find out more
