History

Palm Beach is a nice little secluded beach on the West End of Galveston Island. There is a historical marker noting that the area’s first introduction to world history was in the 16th century from the Spanish soldier Cabeza de Vaca. It was later visited by French explorers, pirates, slave traders, and of course the natives who inhabited the area originally.

Accommodations

Near Palm Beach there are many options for visitor accommodations. Airbnb and VRBO rental homes are available on or near the beachfront and canals and offer some stunning views of the Gulf and easy access to the nearby beaches. Hotels and RV Resort Parks are also close by, and also offer quick and easy access to the beach. Any place is the right place when you stay in Galveston.

Tips

– You will want to bring your own chairs for lounging and an umbrella to keep the sun off of you, at least from time to time.
– Plenty of sunblock is always advised.
– There are also no public restrooms available so make sure you familiarize yourself with the area and have a plan should a bathroom situation arise.
– Make sure you do not park on 13 mile road.
-There are signs that say No Parking and they will enforce towing. Never end your day with an illegally parked and towed car. It makes the walk so much farther.

Please keep your pet on a leash at all times and respect those around you. Make sure you properly dispose of your pet’s waste to keep the beach clean and enjoyable for everyone.
