Activities in Port Aransas

Fantastic Fun for Fishing Fans

Fishing is a local obsession on Mustang Island (and presidents like FDR used to make it their regular destination). You can charter boats from the port and test your skills against huge stocks of flounder, redfish, Gulf tuna, and even marlins or sharks.

A Sun-Drenched Beach Destination

South Texas enjoys wall to wall sunshine for most of the year (even winters are mild) and the Gulf coast near Port Aransas is a sublime place to perfect your tan, play some volleyball, or hit the waves for a swim.

A Great Place to Play Some Golf

The sandy soil of Mustang Island has also made it ideal for golfing, and the area features some amazing courses, such as the Arnold Palmer designed Palmilla Beach Resort which is ranked in Texas' top 10.

Port Aransas has had numerous identities since the 1860s. At first, it was called Ropesville, before becoming Tarpon (after the fish species), then Port Aransas from the 1920s onwards.
