Port Aransas Beach

On Mustang Island and maintained by the Public Works Department.

One reason people come to Port Aransas is to enjoy the 6.3 miles of beach along the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Parking a car on the beach requires a $12 annual sticker, which can be purchased at City Hall, located at 710 W. Avenue A. The sticker is valid until December 31 and allows the vehicle to park along the beach from the south jetty (Nueces County) through Port Aransas Beach to the Kleberg County line (south of Bob Hall Pier).

Camping is permitted for up to three consecutive days at no charge (RV or tent camping) and small campfires are allowed.

The City of Port Aransas provides trashcans along the beach to keep litter from spoiling the beach scene.

Between the sand dunes and the wooden post markers, the beach is a two-lane Texas roadway, subject to all applicable traffic laws.

From the posts to the waterline, people can kick back and relax, read, enjoy the sun, play beach games (Frisbee, volleyball, football).

The water is great for swimming, bodysurfing, boogie boarding, and surfing.
Port Aransas Beach Guards oversee the beach area from Avenue G south to Sandcastle Drive from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
