Sandcastle Update: Hurricane Harvey

Requests are pouring in from owners, neighbors, past and future guests all wanting updates related to the property. Many are viewing glimpses of Port Aransas through facebook posts. Management will be on-site as soon as it is safe and the authorities give us permission to be on-site. While we are all anxious to know about the extent of the damage we must remain patient until the time is right to return. The mayor and police are asking that everyone stay out of Port Aransas so that they can focus their energies on making the city safe. Currently there are no utilities available in Port Aransas and limited to no cell coverage. Once we are able to get operations back online we will be able to process all reservation related items. All reservation related transactions will be postponed until operations can come back online, at which point they will be processed. Updates will be posted to the facebook page, please look to our facebook page for updates and information. 

Thanks in advance for your patience.

Port Aransas Turnbull Birding Center

Port Aransas Turnbull Birding Center

A special place of Port Aransas that is definitely worth the visit at any time of the year is the Port Aransas Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center. This special sanctuary is the home to many migrating birds as well as our local fauna! Believe it or not, there are two alligators that cruise along this special reserve, Boots and Bags. Occasionally you will see them from time to time swimming along the water gracefully or posted up on the shores resting. Very rarely are these fantastic reptiles close to the boardwalk as they are busy searching for another place to sun and rest.

You will see all kinds of animals here in the Birding center. There are so many types of birds that reside here as well as fish and turtles. The water is fairly shallow so you can see most of the trails from the turtles and other birds.

The boardwalk is about roughly a 100 yards with a  top floor viewing deck that allows you to see the entire nature preserve and the bay of Corpus Christi. There are two other viewing decks that allow you to escape from the reality of life and slip into the nature of Port Aransas.

Any time of the year, this birding center is a great place to visit. There are weekly guided nature tours on the boardwalk every Wednesday at 9 am. Make sure you bring your binoculars, mosquito spray, your camera and water!
