Our house is located just 5 miles to the Bolivar ferry which will take you to Galveston. Galveston has many restaurants, live theatre, music, antique homes to tour, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn water park and much, much more.
Crystal Beach and the Bolivar Peninsula has a small public golf course and a small seasonal water slide that is also a hit with the children. There are also two playgrounds in the area.
Birding and nature areas are close by, including an Audubon Trail. Fishing is big in this area, both by boat, in the surf and at 'Rollover Pass.'
The best thing though is the BEACH, BEACH, BEACH! Fishing, Skim boarding, walking the beach, collecting shells (not exciting shells, but there are shells), chasing and/or catching crabs, flying kites and much more. There are also businesses in the area that rent jet skis (in season) as well as golf carts.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We love coming to Bolivar for the relaxation and getting away from everything. It is so peaceful to sit on our deck in a deck chair or in the hammock and watch and listen to the waves or see the sunset. We live in College Station, which is about 3 hours away and come down as much as we can.
Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach, Bolivar Peninsula, TX, USA:
We have loved coming to Bolivar for many years. The tranquility of the area and the friendly people had us coming back again and again. Now that I have a child, I wanted a place (not too far away) where he could learn to enjoy the beach as much as I do. We were very saddened when Hurricane Ike came and demolished the area and are excited to help in revitalizing the Bolivar Peninsula.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy the peace and quiet of Bolivar, while Galveston is just a short ferry ride away. The restaurants on Bolivar Peninsula can't be beat either! The beach is a tenth of a mile walk from our house along a paved neighborhood street. The beach is wide and quiet in 'our' area. You will find some surf fishers and families but usually no loud parties!
