Magnolia Beach

Magnolia Beach Texas is tucked between a series of charming coastal communities, many of which are undiscovered by many on Texas vacations. South of Port Lavaca and edging on Lavaca Bay, Magnolia Beach Texas is a lovely beachfront town filled with wooden homes, a recreational park, one of the many Texas hotels, and a host of shrimp workers. Only about 300 Texans live in Magnolia Beach, making it an intimate community openly welcoming visitors.

Anyone visiting either Corpus Christi or Port Aransas can easily take a Magnolia Beach vacation. A two-hour drive up the coast is all it takes. En route there is plenty of great sightseeing, especially while passing through Aransas Pass, Rockport, Copano Bay, and beautiful San Antonio Bay. Anyone hoping for an extended vacation can choose between a few area cottages for rent. Once settled in, there are plenty of things to do in Magnolia Beach.

Magnolia Beach Texas is excellent for bird watching, fishing, shelling, and bird watching. There are excellent crabbing opportunities, ideal for finding a delicious lunch or dinner. A small fishing pier and public boat launch are appealing to anglers. The nearby marina offers bait, great dining, and arranges deep-sea fishing charters. During a Magnolia Beach vacation, a drive to the city of Indianola makes a great side trip. It's only minutes away by car and offers a look at some important historical sites from the 1800s.

A Magnolia Beach vacation means access to an eight-mile long stretch of beach. Though it's smaller than many Texas beaches—and much quieter than East Beach or Corpus Christi—it is ideal for families looking for some peace and quiet. There are covered picnic shelters with grills, a volleyball court, and a playground. There are also parts of the beach accessible by car, which is an anglers dream for surf fishing. To change your vacation up a bit, there are gambling boats only a short drive from Magnolia Beach as well.
