Life is busy and we do not often have the time to get away for a full-fledged vacation, but when it comes to Port Aransas, even a 3-day getaway will satisfy your travel-hungry soul! Offering beach days and fishing trips and gourmet restaurants and casual seaside joints where the Po Boys are incredible and the beer is always cold, the only thing better than spending three days in the fishing capital of Texas is spending those same three days in the comfort of our Sandcastle Condominiums Texas escapes! Because your life is busy and you do not have a lot of spare time to do the research on how to stay busy at the beach, we have created this 3-Day itinerary to make sure you do not miss out on a single moment of fun!
Day 1- You Finally Made it!
It has been a long time coming and after a few false starts and many hours of travel, you have finally made it to the shores of Port Aransas! Start your first day in paradise out the right way with a hearty breakfast at Coaches Island Grill, located at 717 Tarpon Street. This small and rustic diner only offers a few tables for guests, so you may want to get up early to devour their pancake platters! Your full belly may make you think twice about going to the beach or on a fishing excursion after, but golfers know that a good walk is the best way to work off those extra calories and a morning spent practicing your drives at Palmilla Beach Golf, 258 Snapdragon, will be a morning well spent! Offering beach views and acres of undulating greens, there is no better way to celebrate a beautiful day in Port Aransas than spending your vacation hours on the links! After the game you can wet your whistle at one of our local watering holes, the Salty Dog, 203 N Allister, is a much-loved favorite, and then head back to your Sandcastle Condominiums luxury escape for a shower and a change of clothes; dinner at Castaway’s Seafood & Grill, 337 N Allister Street, is the perfect way to end your first day in paradise!
Day 2- Jam Packed with Excitement
After an early first evening, you jump out of our cloud-soft beds ready to experience a day packed with exciting activities. Enjoy the donuts you purchased earlier at the Donut Palace and skip the lines for breakfast as you head to an early morning fishing expedition offered by Hot Spot Fishing Charters! Offering a variety of offshore charters that range from a 4-hour experience to a 12-hour escape that comes complete with everything you need for a fun day at sea, the knowledgeable charter captains will take you to where the biggest and tastiest fish are biting. Because your time is limited in Port Aransas on this go-round, the four hours will give you a delicious taste of your favorite activity and still leave you time to explore more of what Port Aransas has to offer, including an afternoon spent relaxing and playing on our gorgeous Port A beach! Even a winter visit deserves a couple of hours of toes in the sand time and if you do nothing more than find a spot on the beach, wrap your arms around your knees, and let the magic of the sea seep into your soul, you can consider those hours well spent! End the afternoon with a sunset walk on the beach before heading out for a night on the town; Bernie’s Beach House, 730 Trout Street, and its five bars, live bands, and a dance floor will never let you down!
Day 3- A Change of Pace
You have been on the run for the last two days and tomorrow it will be time to make re-entry into real life, dropping down into the hustle and bustle of work, school, and kids, making your third day in Port Aransas the perfect time to slow down your pace. Sleep in a little later, sip a second cup of coffee on the patio overlooking the sea, and eventually, get dressed and head downtown to the shops and pick up some souvenirs to help you remember this beautiful escape later. Although not technically a souvenir shop, ROAM Boutique, located at 108 E White Avenue is destined to be your favorite spot to shop, offering a beautiful selection of clothing, home décor, jewelry, and gifts. For those who prefer souvenir shops, Islander Souvenirs, 602 S Allister, has everything you hope a great souvenir shop would offer and because their prices are reasonable, you will be able to fill the empty spaces in your suitcases with a plethora of fun mementos.
