Texas Beach & Bay - Access Guide

Produced by the Texas General Land Office

The Texas coastal region's diversity in flora and fauna and its 367 miles of gulf shoreline and 3,300 miles of bay-estuary-lagoon shoreline make it home to fishing communities, wildlife, and varied landscapes. Whether the coastal traveler is interested in fishing, birding, or simply sight-seeing, the Texas coast has something to offer everyone.

The Texas Beach and Bay Access Guide, 2nd Edition (created by the Texas General Land Office) is designed to help the user locate marinas; county, state and federal parks; boat ramps; and areas of recreational interest along the Texas coast. The Guide is available as a book or CD from GLO and on their website as well.

The guide highlights the five areas that make up the Texas coast: Southeast Texas, Houston-Galveston, Golden Crescent, Coastal Bend, and the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Users of this guide should call ahead to sites listed with phone numbers to get complete directions and any updates to site conditions.
