Crystal Beach, Texas on Bolivar Peninsula, now's the time to enjoy our 27 miles of paradise.
October is in full swing and Fall has blessed us with cooler mornings and pleasant afternoons and evenings. Coffee on the deck as the sunrise paints the sky is like eye candy on the horizon. Neighbors walk the beach in the morning and afternoons looking for treasures that wash ashore with each high tide. Traffic is little to none both on the beach and around Bolivar. Laid-back is where we're at for Fall is upon us and now's the time to enjoy it!!!
