Get on Island Time
You deserve a vacation—one where you don’t have to struggle with airlines and flight cancellations. You deserve an island getaway within reach. Make your way to Port A for a coastal escape unlike any other on the Gulf. Leave all your worries on the mainland and fall into the rhythm the locals call “island time.” Chase after the biggest fish you can catch, grab a paddle and explore, or just kick off your sandals and relax in the sand.
Relax Your Rhythm
Here in Port Aransas time isn’t measured by the tick of a clock, but rather the melodic sway of the palm trees or crashing waves on the soft beaches. Locals call it “island time,” and visitors are encouraged to slow down and enjoy it. It’s easy to set aside the hurry when mornings are filled with fresh sea breezes, days are spent on the beach, and evenings are spent exploring the island’s eclectic food scene instead of sitting in traffic on the mainland. With a wide variety of vacation rentals to choose from, it’s never been easier to find your perfect island getaway.
More Than a Beach
With 18 miles of uninterrupted beach, it’s understandable some folks view Port Aransas as just a beach destination. But there’s so much more to do around the island than just surfing, boogie boarding, and relaxing on the soft sandy beaches. Paddle across calm waters in a kayak or on a paddleboard, cruise around the island’s extensive bike trails, or feel the thrill only a jet ski can provide. Head over to the marina to spot sea turtles, search for treasure in local boutiques, or go sea shelling on San José Island. The options are endless in Port A.
Chase Your Trophy
The state of Texas is filled with beautiful lakes, stunning coastline, and bountiful rivers, making the title of “Fishing Capital of Texas” a heavy crown—but it’s one Port Aransas wears with ease. Anglers can cast a line off the jetty, charter a boat to fish for Red Snapper in the bay, or chase after trophy sportfish in deeper waters. Come see how Port Aransas earned its title for yourself.
