The Bolivar Peninsula
Where the Beach and Bay Come to Play
The Texas General Land Office (GLO) has created TxCoasts.com, a web application that provides an easy way for local residents and visitors to locate public access points on the Texas coast, along with the amenities that are available at each access point. Typical examples of amenities included in the application are boat ramps, camp grounds, wildlife viewing areas, RV areas, fishing destinations and much more.
Houston Chronicle Article
We so enjoyed the few months we stayed on the Bolivar Peninsula. We felt so welcome in your community and made many new friends. We plan to return next winter but stay longer. We already miss your lovely community.
This is one for the Chamber of Commerce. My son-in-law Paul Chambless took this picture last summer at the Biscayne I beach, and this is the first time I’ve seen it. Our whole family goes to Bolivar every summer. Biscayne I is our favorite.
We are somewhat new to Crystal Beach and I think it is a wonderful idea to make the maps available to the public. I visited your website and was very impressed. We have had property at the beach and visited on weekends since 2011 and have been impressed with the increase of tourists and housing. I think your office has done too good of a job sometimes when we have to wait in line at local restaurants. Actually, your office has done a wonderful job and I know everyone is pleased with the way Bolivar has come back.

Texas Crab Festival Golf Tournament – Saturday, May 6
Texas Crab Festival Golf Tournament We are excited to announce the Texas Crab Festival Golf Tournament to be held on Saturday, May 6, 2017. This is the weekend before the start of the Festival, and serves to kick off Festival Week. Tee it up with your friends and help improve the lives of the residents of Bolivar Peninsula. This event is hosted by Texas Crab Festival Charities, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that serves to improve the lives of those who call the Bolivar Peninsula home. Since its creation four years ago, TCFC has gifted over $200,000 to help support local organizations and residents. Proceeds from the annual Texas Crab Festival—now in its 32nd year—are reinvested in the community and help fund youth scholarships and camps, local schools and volunteer fire departments, and various outreach initiatives. We invite you to participate in this fun event, as a Player or as a Sponsor, and know that you are helping to give back to our very special and unique community.
