Sometimes you need a getaway with just your girlfriends. Whether it’s to get away from the repetition of every day or reconnect with the ones you haven’t seen in a while, a getaway with your girl pals is just what the doctor ordered! There are plenty of things to do and see that will keep you and your girls as busy or as relaxed as you like. Here are the top things to do for a Port Aransas Girls’ Getaway.
Slip into your bathing suit or beachwear and gather the girls for a day on the sand and sea. Pack up your beach gear and head out for a day on the sand or play time in the water. Spread out your blanket and plant your beach umbrella to lounge on the sand with a book or step out into the sun for some sunbathing. Swim in the waves of the Gulf or take your daily walk or run on the beach.
Get a vacation makeover. Spend the day at a spa and relax with massages, facials, body wraps or scrubs, mani/pedi treatments, and many other services. Choose your spa and your preferred services and make a package full or relaxation just for you.
Get the girls together to try something new. Your adrenaline will be pumping while you learn a new skill when you learn to surf on your girls’ trip to Port Aransas. You can try windsurfing or traditional surfing along the Port Aransas coast. You’ll learn from professional instructors during private lessons that will give you the skills to rent your own board and surf the waves with just you and your friends.
If you and your girlfriends want more adrenaline-pumping fun, rent a jet ski and slice through the waters of the Gulf at top speed. There are several companies that rent jet skis for plenty of fast-paced water excitement. Contact your company of choice and ask about rates as well as age restrictions for passengers and drivers. You may need to obtain a Texas boating certificate before piloting a craft on your own.
Glowing Kayak Tour
Add a glow to your kayak tour. Board a clear kayak lit up by special underwater LED lights! The clear boat allows you to see not only the multiple colors of LED light settings you can choose, but also the underwater world beneath you. Set the lights to your preference for a unique color and style. Paddle along as your tour guide points out landmarks and provide a wealth of knowledge and history about the area on the 1.5-hour nighttime paddle under the stars.
If you’ve explored above the water and want a different point of view, there are several companies that help you take water sports adventure in Port Aransas below the waves. Book a snorkeling or SCUBA diving tour during your girls’ retreat and plunge under the water to see a side of Port Aransas and the Gulf of Mexico you won’t see from inside a tour boat. Make sure to get SCUBA certified before attempting any dives on your own – many companies offer certification before your first plunge.
Sip on wines and craft beers created right in Texas, and other American-made brews. Enjoy a wine tasting featuring a different Texas wine each week, or another event like “Wine & Yoga” and Karaoke/Open Mic night on Wednesdays and Fridays. You can even reserve a space for a special event you’re celebrating with your girls while you’re here. There are other special drinks, like “Wine-a-Rita’s” an agave- wine-based margarita. Sop up the alcohol with soft pretzels, a charcuterie board, hummus plate, or a variety of dips with pita chips. The large variety of drinks is never the same, so each trip will be unique.
Make sure you see all the sights on your girls’ getaway. The Lydia Ann Lighthouse has stood the test of time and Gulf weather since 1857. Chapel on the Dunes is the oldest consecrated church in the area, and still holds weddings and tours. Get to know the area’s fishing history at the Tarpon Inn, built in 1886, or wander through the Port Aransas Museum, or Farley’s Historic Boat Shop.
