    There's nothing insular about the Bolivar Peninsula

    Snaking along the southern stretch of Texas' Galveston County, the Bolivar Peninsula is a legendary relaxation haven on the Texan Gulf Coast. There's a real old-town vibe to this small beach community. There are no big stores or chain restaurants, just quirky family-run businesses which always deliver a friendly smile. Hang out on the beach, go dolphin watching, or chow down on some of the Peninsula's famous seafood. Get your Texan coast adventure off to the best start by booking a beachfront Bolivar Peninsula vacation rental and start making some beachy memories.

    From sandcastles to sharks' teeth, Bolivar's beaches pack a punch

    Bolivar's brilliant beaches make the perfect family destination, as they're all about sailing, sandcastles, and sharks' teeth. Book a Bolivar Peninsula vacation rental close to one of its many beaches and watch as life slows down to a crawl. Kids will love beachcombing for sharks' teeth and building sandcastles, or spotting bouncing dolphins, and rare sea birds as they glide overhead. After a day on the beach, kick back with a margarita and some fresh crab claws in one of the beachfront bars and seafood restaurants. Life is good on the Peninsula!

    Feeling a little crabby? The Bolivar Peninsula has the answer

    It's relaxed laid-back vibe makes the Bolivar Peninsula one of Texas' most popular beach getaways. But there's more to the region than sun, sea, and sand. Built in 1872, the Point Bolivar Lighthouse has been a Gulf landmark for over a century. Now privately owned, you can't climb it, but it's well worth a photo opportunity. See the concrete remains or Old Fort Travis on the Fort Travis Seashore Park. Book a Bolivar Peninsula in May and you could catch the Peninsula's famous Texas Crab Festival. A weekend of crab races, live music, and delicious crab cooked every way.

    Put a sizzle in your summer on the steamy Texan coast

    This stretch of the Gulf coast is blessed with a subtropical climate, which means stacks of sunshine, but humidity too. The Bolivar Peninsula benefits from long, balmy summers, when the mercury regularly reaches the high 90s. The winters are generally short and mild, with plenty of warm, sunny days during fall and spring. The downside of this hot weather is the threat of hurricanes during summer and early fall. Book a Bolivar vacation rental out of peak season and you'll find cooler temperatures, quieter beaches, and an even more relaxed small town vibe.

    Don't mock the flock at the Peninsula's nature reserve

    The beautiful Bolivar Peninsula is 27 mile-long sand barrier overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Aside from the beaches, a big draw to the peninsula is the Anahuac Wildlife Refuge, a protected marshland that attracts a variety of wildlife and birds. Walk along the boardwalk and come eye-to-eye with the resident alligators, while nervous-looking eagles glide overhead. It has 3 fishing piers, a visitors' center, and a popular (and free) self-guided refuge hiking trail around the marshlands. After a day getting to know the wildlife, head back to your beachfront Bolivar Peninsula vacation rental and watch the sun set from the deck.
