Galveston Island's famous Seawall is as much a playground as it a protective barrier for the City against the ever changing tides of the Gulf of Mexico. Whether you enjoy biking, strolling or just people watching, the Seawall is the place to be! Lining over seven miles of beaches, the Seawall, which is 17 feet high, was built to protect the island from tidal surges and hurricane force winds. The Seawall began as a tremendous grade raising project and now extends 54,790 feet, one-third of Galveston's Gulf of Mexico frontage. It has served to protect the island and its residents from many storms over the past 100 years and it is also a great place to enjoy the beachfront!
