What do Bay Harbor Vacation Homes include?

Do you love fishing, boating, and all things ocean? If your main reason for coming to Galveston is to play in and on the water, then a Bay Harbor vacation rental is the right for you! Bay Harbor is located on the far west end of the island, right before Halfmoon. The views are breathtaking, the fishing is unparalleled, and the beaches are wide.

These vacation homes have oversized lots that provide great unobstructed views of the water, as well as easy access to it. Enjoy morning coffee, afternoon snacks, or evening cocktails on your huge private deck. Some homes even have private docks, so you can tie up your own kayak, or hop on your paddleboard for an early morning adventure in the calm waters. Bay Harbor rentals are perfectly suited for large groups, so bring your family and friends for a vacation you’ll always remember!

All Bay Harbor vacation homes are equipped with fully stocked kitchens including pots, pans and dishes to make breakfast, lunch or dinner, and guests are so close to so many delicious places to eat so if you don’t feel like cooking or decide to order in after spending a long day on one of Galveston’s beaches.

You’ll have your pick of ways to get out on the water, whether you love heading out on a deep-sea fishing charter or exploring by kayak or paddleboard. If you don’t have a fishing boat, be sure to call up Gulf Coast Concierge, who will set you up for all your fishing charter needs. Bay Harbor does not have a boat ramp, so if you plan on launching your own boat, you will need to go to the public boat launch in Sea Isle. There are numerous places to rent kayaks, paddleboards, surfboards, and all manner of other fun ocean equipment in Galveston.

Things To Do Near Bay Harbor

Want to scope out the water from a different view? Call up Galveston Helicopters for some exciting aerial thrills. See Galveston Island like never before, and marvel at the beaches, piers, and vast ocean from a bird’s eye view. If that’s not quite exciting enough for you, how about an aerial leap? Skydive Galveston would love to help you make those wildest dreams come true! Galveston is the only place in the country where skydivers land on the beach, every single time.

At the end of a fun day of exploring, sunshine, and water recreation, head back to your Bay Harbor vacation rental and enjoy cooking up your fresh catch of the day. But first stop by Seven Seas Grocery in Jamaica Beach to pick any sides that you would like to go along with your fish. Enjoy dinner with the sunset on your oversized deck.

Didn’t catch anything yet? No worries! You can still have dinner at a local favorite dining spot called Waterman’s, where you’ll enjoy waterfront dining and an absolutely perfect bay sunset every time. This place has oversized piers, just perfect for romantic moonlit walks.
