Recent Crystal Beach vacation rental reviews

House was lovely and clean. Gina responded promptly to minor concerns even though it was a busy time over the holidays.
Kara M. | Jan 2022
Clean house well provide inside and very friendly and and fast response time to any questions we had.
kelly d. | Jan 2022
Close to the beach ( one block). Can see the fireworks and beach traffic from the balcony. Rented this same home last New Years. I still think there should be more parking than 2 cars for a 10 person rental. It is on a busy thru street to the beach, which did not bother us. Everything was great. Would rent again.

Where Is Crystal Beach, TX?

Crystal Beach is a small beach community on the Bolivar Peninsula along the Gulf Coast of Texas. Separated from Galveston Island by a three-mile channel, the free 18-minute ferry ride is a fabulous opportunity to watch ships pass by, and you'll likely see a pod of resident dolphins swimming in your wake! Crystal Beach and nearby Gilchrist are a particular draw for guests looking for a beach escape surrounded by the rugged beauty of the natural landscape while still having access to urban attractions across the channel.

The Bolivar Peninsula

Guests pick Crystal Beach vacation rentals primarily for its access to the beautiful surroundings of Bolivar, including 27 miles of pristine beach on which you can cruise in your car, or on your bike. The mild climate and gentle waters make it a great place to take the kids for boogie boarding, fishing, and crabbing. Swimming is leisurely, and relaxing is a snap. 

Don't miss the historic Point Bolivar Lighthouse for a look at the island's history. Birdwatchers, bring your binoculars and plan a trip to the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, with over 34,000 acres of protected habitat set aside for Galveston Bay's wildlife. 

Things to Do in Crystal Beach, TX

Crystal Beach may have few high-rises, but it is still a resort destination with a home-grown feel. Book tee time at the Crystal Beach Community Golf Course, or visit the Fun Spot Waterslide for a little thrill with the kids!

Of course, you'll want to try some authentic Gulf Coast cuisine, offering fresh seafood and scrumptious barbecue. Try Steve's Landing Restaurant, or Stingaree Restaurant & Bar. Grab lunch to go at the Smoking Pig food cart, or make a picnic in your own Crystal Beach rental, then take it to the Fort Travis Seashore Park for an afternoon by The Gulf. 

Our Crystal Beach vacation rentals offer Gulf Coast travelers a different Texas experience: one of robust, natural beauty, quiet stretches of street, and miles of sand and water. Plan your perfect getaway today.
