About Surfside Beach

Situated in Brazoria County on the Texas Gulf Coast, Surfside Beach is part of the Brazosport Area. This is the place where Texas was made and where the first battle of the War of Independence was fought.

To the southeast lies the Gulf of Mexico and to the southwest, the entrance to Freeport Harbor. So there's plenty of incredible museums if you fancy brushing up on your history and getting to know the area.

Texas Gulf Coast is known for dolphin and whale watching tours too, so there's plenty of unforgettable sights. The area was once known for seafarers hiding treasure, so families will have lots of fun taking their little pirates treasure hunting!

Enjoy some of the best seafood and burgers at a variety of diners. Indulge in a sunset dinner overlooking the sea at Pier 30 or grab something spicier at Isabella's Mexican Grill. A choice of seaside bars mean you can join in the nightlife too!

What to do in Surfside Beach

Soak up the sun on the gorgeous seaside. The gentle waves make this the perfect spot for some swimming and topping up your suntan.

Try your luck catching a fish at one of the popular fishing spots. Check out Surfside Jetty Park, a lovely 2 mile walk with a wonderful view and some fantastic wildlife. This area is perfect for a spot of redfish and trout fishing, so grab a rod and get stuck in!

Fancy learning to surf? The tame waters make it ideal for children and beginner surfers, but more experienced surfers won't get as much of a thrill outside of hurricane season.

Check out the Surfside Historical Museum to catch a glimpse of the Cradle of Texas. Explore a historic plantation or take a tour of a marine fish hatchery! Make sure to head over to Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge or the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge to find out more about the area's animals.
