Welcome to Austin’s Beach

Your island getaway is less than four hours away

The true Texas coast is calling. It’s time to make your way to Port A where 18 miles of uninterrupted beach sit ready for your crew to enjoy the warm surf, cool breezes, and soft sand. Once you're done having fun in the sun, spend some time exploring the island’s eclectic food scene to find the freshest seafood imaginable.


Island Time

You know you’ve arrived in Port Aransas when you see passenger windows rolling down, and hands extending out to ride the ocean air. You’re invited to slow down, slide on your sandals, and enjoy what the locals call “island time.” This coastal community—studded with vacation rentals ranging from cute surf bungalows to impressive houses ready to host groups of any size—means it’s never been easier to make your next vacation an island getaway.


The Fishing Capital of Texas

With a coast as large as the Lone Star State’s, it’s no small feat to be named the “Fishing Capital of Texas.” Anglers flock from all over the world to fish Port A’s warm Gulf waters; they cast a line in the sparkling shallows and chase after trophy fish in the deep blue depths. Charter a boat or try your hand at pier fishing—there’s no better place in Texas to cast a line.
