Discover Hershey Beach
You can get to Hershey Beach via Public Beach Access #10 just off Termini-San Luis Pass Rd. From there you can park on the sand and walk down the beach to access the your spot. There is a decent amount of parking on the beach, but all of the on beach parking is for Beach Access #10. Hershey Beach is just a short walk away, past the car barriers, where you will find yourself ready to relax on your very own piece of island paradise.
Being farther down past the seawall, Hershey Beach is a treasure in itself. You can park nearby, but not on the beach, so it is open and clear of cars. It is more secluded because of this so if you are okay with a little walk you can find your piece of sandy paradise away from the crowds.
In addition to the beach, Hershey Beach is also near the Galveston Island State Park, which features a range of outdoor activities, including hiking and birdwatching. The park also offers opportunities for camping, with campsites available for tents, trailers, and RVs. Borrow a free Junior Ranger Explorer Pack and learn about nature while filling in your very own Junior Ranger Journal. It’s a wonderfully interactive way for children and adults to explore nature and learn how to live in harmony with it.
Pets are welcome on Hershey Beach so bring your four-legged friend when you come to the beach. Please always keep your pet on a leash and be mindful of those around you. Also don’t forget to properly dispose of your pet’s waste to keep the beach clean and enjoyable for everyone.
