Discover more about the beach
Jamaica Beach is a beautiful coastal town located on the western end of Galveston Island. It was officially recognized in 1975 and today is considered one of the safest places to live on the island. You can get to Jamaica Beach via Termini-San Luis Pass Rd and turning onto Buccaneer Dr. From there, park and enjoy the sand in your toes.
Being down on the west end of the island, Jamaica Beach is a bit removed from some of the crowds like East Beach and Stewart Beach. Even though there may be smaller crowds, parking can be tight and there may be a walk to find your own little beach paradise to spread out on. Jamaica Beach is a wonderful beach to go to relax, find seashells, throw a frisbee, and take your furry friend for a walk.
Known for being a vibrant housing community with beautiful beaches offering opportunities for swimming, sunbathing, and fishing. The town is home to the Jamaica Beach City Park, which features a playground, picnic areas, and a pavilion available for rental. They also have a public swimming pool. There is a paved boat ramp, Regatta Basin, on Basin Dr near Jolly Roger Rd, which provides access to canals that lead to West Bay.
Jamaica Beach offers a variety of accommodations for visitors. There are several Airbnb and VRBO rental homes available on or near the beachfront or canals that offer stunning views and easy access to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. There are also RV Resort Parks and hotels that offer quick and easy access to the beach. No matter where you choose to stay, Jamaica Beach is a great place to visit.
You and your pet are welcome at Jamaica Beach. There’s no need to leave your four legged friend behind when you come to the beach. Please keep your pet on a leash at all times and respect those around you. Take precautions because dogs can get a sunburn too. Make sure you properly dispose of your pet’s waste to keep the beach clean and enjoyable for everyone.
