Port A

The area itself! Port A has a long and interesting history.

The shores of Port A were even part of the country’s defense system during WWII after the attack on Pearl Harbor.


The beaches of Port A are world-class, and attract visitors, locals, and even world-class professional sandcastle builders! In fact, each year, Port A hosts Texas Sandfest, where you’ll get a chance to see some of those builders produce works of art from the sand you walk on each day of your visit. The angular grains of sand with their high clay and silt content locks in moisture for a unique feel between your toes, but also containing the perfect recipe for award-winning sand sculptures.
