The Bolivar Peninsula

Where the Beach and Bay Come to Play


Texas Coasts

The Texas General Land Office (GLO) has created, a web application that provides an easy way for local residents and visitors to locate public access points on the Texas coast, along with the amenities that are available at each access point.  Typical examples of amenities included in the application are boat ramps, camp grounds, wildlife viewing areas, RV areas, fishing destinations and much more.

We so enjoyed the few months we stayed on the Bolivar Peninsula. We felt so welcome in your community and made many new friends. We plan to return next winter but stay longer. We already miss your lovely community.

This is one for the Chamber of Commerce.  My son-in-law Paul Chambless took this picture last summer at the Biscayne I beach, and this is the first time I’ve seen it. Our whole family goes to Bolivar every summer.  Biscayne I is our favorite.

We are somewhat new to Crystal Beach and I think it is a wonderful idea to make the maps available to the public. I visited your website and was very impressed. We have had property at the beach and visited on weekends since 2011 and have been impressed with the increase of tourists and housing. I think your office has done too good of a job sometimes when we have to wait in line at local restaurants. Actually, your office has done a wonderful job and I know everyone is pleased with the way Bolivar has come back.
