Beachtober

Get Ready to Fall for Port A

Fall in Port Aransas means warm water, shorter wait times, and miles of wide open beaches. This season is a tried-and-true visitor favorite time of the year, when generations of Texans take loved ones on quiet morning walks along the coast, cast a line into salty waters, and ride bikes in the cool sea breezes.

October also means a bevy of autumnal events happening every weekend, a time the island likes to call "Beachtober!" These events range from a weekend of live music kicking off with a Landsharks concert to the Wooden Boat Festival, a celebration of the historical Farley Boat Works. See the full list of happenings below!
