FROM HOUSTON:  Click on the red links for info.

Take I-45 south to Galveston. After you pass over the causeway, continue down Broadway until you reach the beach. Turn left on Ferry Road, (two stop lights), and continue to the landing. It takes the free Galveston-Bolivar Ferry about 20 minutes to travel across the bay to Bolivar Peninsula.

When you exit the Ferry, you are on Highway 87 at the community of Port Bolivar, home of the Bolivar Lighthouse and the North Jetty, famous for fishing.

Crystal Beach is northeast on Highway 87 about 10 miles from the Ferry Landing. Our great Gulf front location makes summer, fall, spring and even winter months ideal for family vacations on Bolivar. Summer is the time for spending lazy days on the beach, shelling, crabbing or fishing. Spring is for birdwatching and more shelling, and the fall fishing is great.

ENJOY our fine restaurants, shopping and day and night entertainment...from the water slide to dancing spots, fishing piers, crabbing and much more.

ALTERNATE ROUTE from Houston (to avoid the Ferry). Take I-10 east to Winnie (exit# 828). See below.


Take I-10 west to Winnie, then head south on Highway 124 until you come to the beach road, Highway 87. Turn right, go about 17 miles to Crystal Beach. In the community of Gilchrist, you will pass over the bridge at Rollover Fishing Pass.
