Best Beach: Port Aransas Beach

For the second consecutive year, Port Aransas was voted by readers the best beach in the Crossroads.

Though the beach is a more popular destination during the summer months, Port Aransas is equally beautiful during the cooler part of the year, said Ann Vaughan, president and CEO of the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce.

Vaughan said the beach offers visitors the opportunity to fish, kayak, kite board, surf and parasail. But it's also a peaceful destination to sit in the car and watch the birds or waves.

Port Aransas beach has about 5 million visitors per year, said Vaughan.

"Generations of families have been coming to Port Aransas for a long time. And I think the reason that they like our beach is that it is so accessible," she said.
