Fun & Convenience at Jamaica Beach
Jamaica Beach is away from the hustle and bustle of the seawall and downtown Galveston, but not so far that you’re isolated. Galveston’s West End grocery store, Seven Seas, is the perfect spot to get everything you need to keep your kitchen stocked. If you don’t feel like cooking, enjoy a yummy post-beach lunch from the Shrimp n’ Stuff food truck. When you’re not relaxing and cooling off at the beach, take a splash in the neighborhood pool, which is open to all Jamaica Beach homeowners and guests.
Each of our Jamaica Beach Galveston rentals has either beach or canal views, so you’re always near the water. Do yourself a favor and rent some kayaks from K6 Island Sports, so you can explore the waters as long as you please. While the canals and bay side of Jamaica Beach are fun places to paddle around, if you’d rather cruise in a natural setting, take your kayaks over to Galveston Island State Park. This 2000-acre preserve is the largest undeveloped area on Galveston Island, and is a great spot for not only enjoying the paddling trails, but also the hiking trails, beaches, and migratory bird watching opportunities. True nature lovers will agree: easy access to Galveston Island State Park is one of the prime reasons to stay in Jamaica Beach!
When you feel like venturing further afield, Galveston Island is packed with all types of favorite vacation activities. Rent beach cruisers, and spend a fun day riding up and down Seawall Boulevard, exploring the many beaches Galveston has to offer. Ride horses on scenic East Beach or take the ferry boat across the channel to Point Bolivar for the day. Charter a deep-sea fishing expedition and see what you can catch for dinner!
If you’re in a city mood when staying in your Jamaica Beach Galveston rental, take a walking tour around the East End Historic District, or attend a performance at the fully-restored Grand 1894 Opera House. Tour the grand Victorian mansion, Bishop’s Palace, and learn about the fascinating history of Galveston. Visit the Tall Ship Elissa at the Texas Seaport Museum or check out the Bryan Museum to view one of the world’s largest collections of materials relating to Texas and the American West. When you get historically hungry, enjoy dinner at Gaido’s, a Galveston staple since 1911, where you can enjoy the finest Gulf shrimp, Bay oysters, and world-famous Texas pecan pie.
Looking for a little more adrenaline in your vacation? Check out the wild water slides at Schlitterbahn, where teens can get their thrills while parents relax in the lazy river. Or whoop it up on a high-speed jet boat ride! Galveston is also the only place in the United States where skydivers are guaranteed to always land on the beach, so now’s your chance to give it a try like you’ve always wanted! Late-night revelers can also enjoy the carnival-style games and amusement park rides at the Historic Pleasure Pier.
