Spanish Grant

Spanish Grant


If Galveston had a Margaritaville, then it would probably be Spanish Grant. This place has the charm and the chill vibe and would most assuredly make Jimmy Buffet proud. The understated appeal makes you want to trade in your high heels for flip flops and become one with the locals.

No shoes, no shirt, well that’s ok at Spanish Grant the idea is to enjoy island living and cast your cares to the wind. Pack up the cell phone and break out the grill because the scene is laid back and the motto is “its 5 o’clock somewhere.” This favorite vacation spot resonates with island goers because it offers beach or bay houses, so most anywhere you stay will have a water view.

No frills or fuss but a good old fashioned, back to basics, relaxing and decompressing, stress free vacation opportunity awaits anyone at Spanish Grant. Spanish Grant is welcoming, friendly and offers vacationers a sense of community while away from home. Not only is it neighborly but it allows a versatility that other communities don’t have in terms of amenities and flexibility. Some homes have private boat docks that appeal to the boaters, while other homes are just steps from the beach.

While you’re staying at Spanish Grant don’t forget to call up Capt. Hal Newsom’s Air Boat Tours just around the corner on Stewart Rd. or visit the Historic Galveston Island Pleasure Pier. If you’re a shutterbug, novice photographer or just love to Instagram; then you’ll want to get up early and head over to the Pleasure Pier to capture some amazing sunrise photos.

While you’re on that end of the island drop by Murdoch’s, a seriously historic landmark and lounge in one their outdoor rockers or pick up a souvenir or two.

Don’t forget to head back towards Spanish Grant after sunset to enjoy an evening under the stars, cuddled up listening to the sounds of nature mixed with ocean waves, the perfect ending to any day.
