My Daughter and I enjoyed our visit to the Galveston seawall and the views leading to it. It was well worth our trip from San Antonio! It was very peaceful and beautiful! The fresh breeze off the water felt amazing! We visited the less frequented portion of the beach and thought it was incredible! We will definitely visit again! There was a restaurant and souvenir shop with very friendly Staff. We loved every minute of it.
Great place for an early morning walk in the beach. No too hot and not too windy. They start putting out chairs with tents early for your to enjoy for a price if you want to stay on the beach with shade.
