What do Hershey Beach Vacation Homes include?

Hershey Beach in Galveston is a West End vacation destination beach nestled in between Spanish Grant and Sands of Kahala. It’s a perfect location being a halfway point between Jamaica Beach and the Galveston Seawall. Over half of Hershey Beach is private, reserved for the beachfront rentals and residents but there is a part open to the public. Hershey Beach is a high demand location with limited availability, partly because it’s a small community (two rows) and also because the welcome sign says “a little taste of paradise.”

There’s so much to love about Hershey Beach! The views are awesome, the sunset is breathtaking, and the location is conveniently placed to allow visitors to enjoy all sides of the island. All Hershey Beach 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 Galveston’s beaches.

Things To Do Near Hershey Beach

Imagine yourself walking barefoot on the beach, hosting a BBQ or collecting seashells along the shore. Have quiet time on the sand and enjoy the exclusivity of the private part of Hershey Beach or venture over and mix & mingle with new people on the public side.

Most of the Hershey Beach Galveston rentals are massive and are perfect for bringing the entire family together for a reunion. This spot is also ideal for a few couples who want to share a weekend vacation or ladies who want to indulge in a girl’s only “girlfriend time” getaway. Don’t forget to visit Downtown Galveston for a girl’s night out and tons of places to grab a drink and bite to eat.

While you’re there don’t forget to visit Moody Gardens, The Lone Star Flight Museum, or try your hand at pier fishing at Jimmy’s on the Pier just down the road. If you’re looking to tap into your childhood or literally need to satisfy some active kids, you’re just a stone’s throw from Kites Unlimited located at 89th and the Seawall, near Magic Carpet Golf. If it’s a rainy day, go watch a good action or romantic film with your loved ones.

No matter what you like to do for fun, the Galveston seaside has it all. Moody Gardens, a popular family entertainment complex, offers practically everything from adventurous rope courses, great golfing, an aquarium, indoor rainforest complex, discovery museum, and 3D theatres.

Those who favor more classic beachside amusement will have fun visiting Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, where you can indulge in a seaside roller coaster, carnival games, and souvenir shops. For those who need more adrenaline, a visit to Schlitterbahn water park should do the trick!
