The Seawall stretches from 9th Street to past 89th, with parallel parking and steps conveniently located. If you are in the habit of bypassing the Seawall beaches because you've seen it get swallowed up when the tide is in, look again! Over the past three years, the city has been bringing in sand to widen the beaches between 10th and 61st Streets - as much as 150 feet in places - modeled after similar "beach nourishment projects" in Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Daytona Beach. In the summer, you can rent beach umbrellas and buy concessions.
The Galveston.com Surf Cam is located atop The Commodore hotel, 37th and Seawall Boulevard. Book a room online here, or by dialing (888)939-8680.
