Things to Do in Crystal Beach

Stretching 7 miles along Texas State Highway 87 in the middle of Bolivar Peninsula, Crystal Beach offers a variety of things to do that made it a popular destination all year-round. Crystal Beach, (and the entire Bolivar Peninsula), is accessible by Ferry from Galveston Island, and via Hwy 124 from the east side. Instead of a bridge connecting Galveston Island to the Peninsula, Texas DOT operates several Ferries to transport tourists and residents alike to and from this glimmering island, for free.
