There’s still ample time to soak up the sun in sandy Port Aransas, Texas, before winter inevitably cools the Gulf Coast. Port A Escapes has a fleet of gulf-view condos and homes that are steps from private beach acreage, where the teal sea meets the powdery shoreline. Port Aransas Beach itself spans approximately 6.3 miles along Mustang Island’s salty coastline. This idyllic stretch of Texas coastline allures growing families, casual beachgoers, and aquatic aficionados alike. In an effort to provide a better understanding of our wind-swept haven, we’ve compiled a handy Port Aransas Beach day guide.

Port Aransas Beach Season Continues

With the core summer Port Aransas Beach season in the rearview mirror, you should see much less foot and boat traffic this fall. Before we delve into our favorite beach stops and activities, we’d like to share some helpful tips. Per usual, bring plenty of sunscreen, backup sunglasses, water shoes (if you plan on exploring the ocean’s floor), snorkeling gear, snacks, and a cooler full of beverages.

Remember to arrive at the beach early to “reserve” the perfect spot for a full day of relaxation and aquatic adventure. Lastly, while alcohol is permitted, be wary of the alcohol-free time slots, which vary, depending on the beach. If you rent a private beach home, you obviously won’t have to worry about said regulations. Most folks convene in between the city’s main pier and the Port Aransas Jetty along the southern edge of Aransas Pass; although, there are numerous access points on the isle.
