5 Things to Do on Your Sandy Adventure

Found on Mustang Island, Port Aransas is home to 6.3 miles of shoreline along the Gulf of Mexico. Once you step foot on the sand, it won’t be hard to figure out why this is considered one of the top beach towns in the South. There are countless things to do on your Port Aransas beach day, but we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorites.


1. Grab your buckets and see who can make the best sandcastle. If you’re looking to build the best sandcastle ever, sign up for a lesson from the Port Aransas Sand Castle Guy.

2. Cool off by going for a quick swim. Before wading in, be sure you’re familiar with rip current safety. For an extra layer of protection, swim between Marker D and Marker 9, as this is where lifeguards are stationed daily from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

3. The waters off our shoreline are the perfect place to try and ride a wave or two. However, you don’t have to haul your surfboard with you. Island Surf Rentals and Golf Carts has your surfboard rental needs covered. Improve your surfing by booking a lesson with Texas Surf Camps.

4. Take in views of the shoreline on a high-flying parasailing adventure. Both Port A Parasailing and Chute’em Up can help you experience views from a birds-eye perspective. 

5. End your day at the beach with s’mores around the fire. Your fire cannot be bigger than three feet wide by three feet deep by three feet high. Before you leave, make sure you fully extinguish your fire with water.
