Texas Coastal Bend
Port Aransas, Texas - The Rest of Texas
Port Aransas, a little fishing village on the Gulf of Mexico, is located on the northern tip of Mustang Island, one of the barrier islands along the Central Texas Coast across from Corpus Christi Bay. Mustang Island, which got its name from the wild horses that once roamed the island, is an 18-mile stretch of clean, sandy beach offering visitors birding, shelling, fishing, beach combing, surf fishing, or just plain relaxation. Lodging choices, including campgrounds, RV sites, motels, inns, cottages and condominiums add to the enjoyment and invite visitors to return year after year.
