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.

The Grand Canyon at Sunset

Standing against the railing along the edge of the cliff, I watched as far as my eyes can see of the panorama around. Immense, wide, expansive. Because it stretches 277 miles. Who could see it all at once? For the one admission fee, you can explore it for seven days.

The facial deep cleaning was good, but I got more facial massage than I did conditioning itself!
