Rockport Beach is Texas’s first Blue Wave Beach, certified by the Clean Beaches Coalition. The magnificent long crescent of fine sand and calm shallows has 65 quaint picnic areas with shade, grills, and picnic tables, volleyball courts, several kids’ playgrounds with swings, and a beautiful ¾-mile-long walking path along the Little Bay shores. The beach is a designated bird sanctuary, so try to spot some colorful birds while you are walking. Fishing is permitted everywhere except at the saltwater pool and at the boat dock. The best fishing is at the 800-foot-long pier at the end of the beach. The beach is popular with water skiers and jet skiers in the summer. No cars are allowed on the beach. If you are looking for the
cleanest beach in Texas, this is a great place. Also, the rules are no dogs, no fires and no overnight camping.
