How To Get To SandFest

Many people wonder what’s the best way to get to SandFest? You can find the best places to park here. But getting to Port A has options to consider.

First, it is important to understand that the beach road is often restricted to one-way traffic heading southbound from Avenue G to Access Road 1-A. This starts at about 8 a.m. and remains this way until about 8 p.m. on each day of the event.

So, whether you are coming in from the south via 361 North, or coming across the ferry landing to Port Aransas, you should definitely map out where you wish to access the festival. During peak times, you can expect the main beach access points to be backed up with slow moving traffic.

There are many Shuttle pickup points around the town, and there are many parking lots to consider.  The most popular parking lots are the North Gate Parking lot around beach marker 9 primarily accessible from Avenue G, and the South Gate parking lot near Mile Marker 19.

Pack a little patience as you enter and leave the area and take some time to enjoy the salty breeze and sunshine. Most of all, arrive safe and have an amazing Port A experience!
