Nature & Parks

Just because Port Aransas is situated on an island doesn’t mean the beach is the only natural beauty in the vicinity for all visitors to enjoy. In fact, Port A has four nature preserve sites featuring hiking and bike trails, boardwalks, and wildlife observation areas. Enjoy a vigorous trail walk, beachcomb for seashells, or learn about sea turtles and marine birds at the Animal Rehabilitation Keep. Aside from the preserves, parks in the area are a reliable source of family fun for the young and young at heart. There are outdoor options at all activity comfort levels, so nobody need be excluded from soaking in the natural charm.
