About this beach

Warnings and hazards

Dedicated dog area.

Rockport is a small fishing and artist community. Although the city was severely damaged by the hurricane Harvey and you can still observe the consequences, people are strong and the businesses are recovering. In fact, Rockport Beach has been voted one of the top 10 beaches in Texas. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Rockport Beach is a long and beautiful family friendly beach with a great view. Compared to other Texas beaches, it is rather small though. It is a very family friendly place – there are plenty of parents with children as well as single couples. Fishermen and birders love this place too, local fauna is very diverse.

Not only you have the gulf side, but a salt water pool on the bay side also. The water isn't very deep so it's great for your children – to get to the deeper part of the waters you will need to walk hundreds of feet away from the beach area. And because of this shallowness, the water is always warm. There are little to no waves.

The beach is well maintained and kept very clean. The sand is not powdery – it has some pebbles and shells mixed in, kind of like river sand.

If you have a dog, they are allowed on a dedicated territory of the beach, and you don't have to pay for it.

Lots of lunch options nearby. Parking fee (in-and-out pass) is $5 for the day per vehicle.

There's a really long pier which you can fish off. 

Beach offers free umbrellas (shaded cabanas rather – see the pics), on a first come first serve basis. If you want one, make sure to arrive early, around 8-9 AM during the weekends or around 10 AM if it's on a weekday.

There is a small playground area for the kids to enjoy, a number of picnic tables, an outdoor sprinkler to rinse off the sand, as well as bathrooms and showers. Overall the facilities are nice but could be upgraded – they seemed somewhat sketchy and outdated.
