Getting To Crystal Beach & Bolivar Peninsula


Take I 45 south to Galveston. Continue straight down Broadway until you reach the beach. Turn left to Ferry Road, (two stop lights). Left again on Ferry Road to the landing. It takes the free Ferry 13 minutes to travel across Galveston Bay to Bolivar Peninsula.

When you get off the Ferry you are on Highway 87 at the community of Port Bolivar, home of the North Jetty, Click  famous for fishing.
Crystal Beach is 10 miles northeast on Highway 87. Our great Gulf front location makes summer, fall, spring and even winter months ideal for family vacations on Bolivar. Summer is the time for spending lazy days on the beach, shelling, crabbing or fishing. Spring is for birdwatching and more shelling, and the fall fishing is great.

ENJOY our fine restaurants, shopping and day and night entertainment...from the water slide to dancing spots, fishing piers, crabbing and much more.


Take I 10 west to Winnie, then head south on Highway 124 until you come to the beach road, Highway 87. Turn right, go about 7 miles to the bridge at Rollover Fishing Pass in the community of Gilchrist. After the bridge, it is 6 miles to Crystal Beach.
