Sorry ya'll. But Galveston beaches are disgusting.
Someone took me on vacation to Galveston, and got pissed off at me because I said these beaches are disgusting. Texas is no good for beaches. I would rather spend the extra and fly to Florida.

I've lived in Houston for 25 years and I've only been to Galveston once. Give me the white sandy beaches of Alabama and Florida any day.

Galveston beaches are natural because they haven't shipped in Sand like other beaches. Florida has better beaches but then again they don't have the Mississippi river dumping debris on their beaches.

Re: Sorry ya'll. But Galveston beaches are disgusting.
I was born in Dallas and I've been to Galveston several times and I agree with the OP. The water is dirty as fuck with a shit ton of people in the summer months so it's not really a beach to go and relax and enjoy the scenery on.. It's more of a last minute, "I'm broke as hell but I really wanna just 'say' I went to a beach but secretly am dying for Maui" kind of thinking......

No I did not. The Mississippi River is probably sewer water by the time it runs into the gulf. A mile down where we were at the beach was a high alert for high fecal bacteria.

I was born in Galveston, my grandfather was a big part of the mob there in the 60-90's, still have a lot of family that lives there, so of course I visit often - I will say this - Pharmy's are the worst there - everyone there is on pharmy's thanks to the pill mills in TX - It's now a very poor town, but back in the day, it was a very rich place, much more beautiful than it is now. If you ever go, MUST eat Queen's BBQ~ but the dirty water is from the gulf and Mississippi river mixing. There are times when the water is crystal blue/green, but not often, and it has been taken over by Mexicans on vacation because Fertitta made it into a crap tourist town by building the failure Pleasure Pier full of commercial crap.
I so wish I could go back and develop Galveston again, it has the structure and architecture, it just needs to be properly redeveloped again, it has the potential of being like Charleston SC, if someone with the vision can afford to make it happen. Tilman F wouldnt listen to me and made it a crap touristy place now with trashy people everywhere.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2226485


It flows to the east hence the dirty beaches in Mississippi and Dauphin Island, AL. The rivers flowing into Mobile Bay deflect the dirty Mississippi River silt, hence why you have the whiter beaches from Baldwin County/Gulf Shores AL all the way through Florida.

Galveston beaches are ugly because of the Houston ship channel and all ships constantly churning up the mud and them spilling their fuel in the canal as well that washes up on Galveston beaches.

The prettier beaches are further south in Corpus and Padre.

Re: Sorry ya'll. But Galveston beaches are disgusting.
We just spent a week at Jamaica Beach on Galveston Island and it was pretty nice.

We rented a 3bd/2 ba house on a channel which had it's own boat dock and fishing deck. We caught fish and blue crabs.

Nice clean beach down there on the west end of the island with plenty of eye candy and far less people than up on the east end, up by Pleasure Pier.

We drove the minivan right down to the water damn near.

We had a great time and I would recommend that area to my friends.
