An overview of Galveston’s parks and beaches


Galveston Beaches

Galveston beaches consist of thirty-two miles of Gulf Coast beaches. With almost ten and a half miles of Seawall beach access, the sidewalk pavement provides for beach walking, jogging, cycling or skating. Cycling rentals are readily located and are an enjoyable sightseeing venture by many. Besides Seawall Beach, there are forty-three additional Galveston beaches. Some of Galveston’s beaches offer paid parking access, but the majority of Galveston beaches are public access beaches.
