Overall Rating

We heard about Crystal Beach last Winter & as we were traveling 1-10 this Fall, chose to give it a try.

You can get a Sticker for $10 that will allow you to camp thru the end of the current calendar yr but there are sections of beach that don't require the permit. If you travel SW on rt 87 thru CB & It's modest development & past all the beach front homes in a few miles you'll come to an intersection w/ Retillon Rd on your left. Drive E on it to where it ends on the beach (vault toilet here) Turning N on the beach which is much wider here than in town a permit is required . But, to the S signs indicate "free beach" & you can camp for approx the next mile along this section until you reach a barrier preventing further vehicle traffic. Great views from along here of the mouth of the Houston ship Channel & bldgs of Galveston in the distance. Only facilities are frequent trash cans. We found this area much nicer than the section of beach fronted by continuous vacation homes. (note differences in pix posted under heading -not mine) Would have stayed much longer but bad weather blew in & we skedaddled
