Situated on the Gulf of Mexico, Surfside is near the city of Freeport and not too far from Houston. Surfisde is a surfers' paradise and a chilled-out village complete with cute stilt houses and pretty stretches of beach.
As the name suggests, the best thing to do here is grab a board and hit the waves -- the shoreline is pristine and runs for four miles! If surfing isn't your thing, simply relax on the sand or try your hand at windsurfing and kayaking. Fishing is also popular in these parts too. With perfect conditions for some of the best fishing in the state, head down to Surfside Jetty Park one of the top spots in town to cast your line. For crabbing, get down to the Crabbing Pier by Stahlman Park.
For something more active, make your way to the three-mile long Bluewater Highway Trail which is ideal for joggers and cyclists, and boasts lovely views along the way. Elsewhere, bird-lovers will enjoy the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge, where hundreds of species can be spotted.
March and April are great months for visiting and safely avoid hurricane season.
Hit the waves, relax on the beach, catch a fish, and enjoy the easy-going pace of Surfside Beach, Texas with family and friends. The laid-back community is nestled on the Gulf of Mexico, about an hour south of Houston.
Take the kids to Splash Pad Park for some freshwater fun -- a great way to cool off in the summer heat. Two of the most popular activities here are also surfing and fishing: the shores are known for their consistent waves and many shops provide equipmenet for rent. The coastal reefs and deep coastal waters provide the ideal conditions for fish to thrive, and the best spot to try your hand at a catch is the Surfside Jetty Park.
The Bluewater Highway Trail starts at the center of town and is a fun way to see everything Surfside has to offer. Although a small town, there is large range of Surfside Beach condos to choose from, some offering stunning sea views. Vacation rentals come in all shapes and sizes, so you're sure to find one to fit your preferences.
