I wrote it some time ago, I still feel the same way...
Bolivar Peninsula Through My Eyes
What we have on Bolivar Peninsula is like no other place on the Texas Gulf Coast. It’s a 27 mile stretch of paradise rich in history. A sand between your toes kind of place that you can drive on and fish off of, enjoy the time here with the family and friends. It’s a laid back community of Crystal Beach, Gilchrist, High Island and Port Bolivar, with plenty to do. Were the sun comes up over the Gulf with an impressionable view like no other and sets over East Galveston Bay melting into the horizon. Once you’ve been here you hate to leave and once you leave you can’t wait to come back. We have most everything we need with no BIG chain stores, mostly family owned businesses where it’s the owner that opens in the morning and closes after the sun sets. Adults and kids spend most the day and part of the night outside with no or minimal electronic usage (we do have cell service here) and don’t miss it. Time slips away when your on Bolivar Peninsula in a good way. You can cook on the pit outdoors at your house or enjoy one of the many restaurants Bolivar has to offer, from Burgers, Seafood Baskets and pizza to Steak and or Gilled or Fried Shrimp, we have it all here, no need to leave Bolivar.
If the beach isn’t an all day thing for you, maybe around of golf at our public golf course or hit one of the shops, Surf Shops, Kite Shops or the Big Store that has it all. We have Golf Cart Rentals by the day or week for you to use to drive endlessly down the beach, you can’t do that anywhere else I know of. We have a Water slide on Bolivar for the kids with shade for the adults to watch and relax.
If you really need to get away Bolivar has several local fishing guides for a morning on the bay for Specs, Reds and Flounder depending on the time of the year. In the Spring the Bird Watching on Bolivar and in High Island is known to be some of the best on the Gulf Coast and in the United States.

People from all walks of life have discovered Bolivar Peninsula, many as vacationers to start and now proud home owners.
I guess what I’m trying to let everyone know is the Bolivar Peninsula and Crystal Beach, Texas is like no other. I’m a business owner here, live here and proud of it and want to share it with you. Come see us to Relax, Vacation and Live!!!!
