Love is in the Waves

Romance is never far away when you’re on an island…and it’s even closer when that island is Mustang Island, which is just a few hours’ drive from big city hubs like Austin, Houston, and Dallas! Make the journey extra special by planning out a date night—or day—that is unique to Port Aransas!


Book A Stay at Balinese Suites…and A Massage While You’re There!

The Balinese Suites are an adult-only property perfect for spending quality time with your significant other. This peaceful haven features a heated saltwater pool and on-site spa treatments. That’s right—the name doesn’t sound familiar for no reason. The Balinese Suites are attached to the Balinese Wellness Spa, where you can choose from services like a world-class hot stone massage or oxygen rejuvenating facial.

Watch the Sunset

Though you can’t watch the sun set over the beach, you can enjoy stunning sunsets from locations on the ship channel side of the island. The observation deck at Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center provides a perfect vantage point to view the painted skies for miles. You can also dine and enjoy the view at the same time from the deck of The Phoenix Restaurant & Bar, which offers selections ranging from eclectic sushi rolls to grilled snapper in lemon butter sauce. Port A’s sunsets are so beautiful, in fact, that they were recently named one of the “15 Most Spectacular Sunsets in the U.S.” by Fodor’s Travel.

Have Dinner at Roosevelt’s at the Tarpon Inn

The menu is exquisite and the attention to detail is unbelievable. A reservation at Roosevelt’s on any night of the week is special, but keep an eye out, because the fine eatery also hosts a selection of unique meals throughout the year, including on the holiday dedicated to love, Valentine’s Day!

Take a Boat Ride
