About Bolivar Peninsula
Bolivar Peninsula has over 27 miles of pristine beach shoreline along the Gulf Coast. Crystal Beach is one of the best and cleanest in the area. Vehicles are allowed to drive and park on all 27 miles of it. You can purchase a beach parking permit from numerous local shops or stores in Bolivar or Crystal Beach. It costs around $15 for an entire year.
The beach is accessible from most crossroads along Highway 87. During the day, you’ll find families and friends on the sandy beach, constructing sandcastles, looking for shark teeth and seashells, boogie boarding, surfing, or just soaking up the sun. The beach is an excellent spot for a mid-day picnic or late-afternoon barbecue.
Crystal Beach Activities
New Year’s Eve and the Fourth of July are key dates to mark on your calendar at Crystal Beach. On both dates, you can see spectacular fireworks that span the entire length of the beach. At the Hidden Gold beach cabin, you’ll have a front-row seat for a fireworks display that you won’t want to miss. You can kick back and watch the show, park your vehicle on the beach (if you have a permit) or swing by one of the local fireworks stands and stock up on your own festive goodies. The only rule is you pick up after yourself and leave the beach clean and safe for future guests.
Points of Interest
Port Bolivar is home to some fantastic nature! The Houston Audubon Horseshoe Marsh and the Bolivar Flats bird sanctuaries are near this vacation rental. The area has a fantastic combination of salt marsh, mud flats and beachfront and is home to the highest-rated designation in the birding world, known as a Globally Important Bird Area. It is an international site in the Shorebird Reserve Network, with hundreds of thousands of birds converging there to feed on local marine life.
There are hundreds of species of shorebirds and land birds to see, including pelicans, cranes, herons, osprey, spoonbills, and crested caracara. Many make their home here, while others make a stop during their annual migratory route. The best way to view the birds without disrupting their natural habitat is along the North Jetty, just west of Rettilon Road, or from a kayak in the water.
