What do The Preserve at Grand Beach Vacation Rentals include?

Located on the East End of Galveston Island, The Preserve at the Grand Beach, is a stunning subdivision that has been recently built. The community was developed by Mickey Giles and Frank Schaefer to bring the first gated beachfront community to Galveston Island. 

With only a limited number of vacation homes that line the Galveston Gulf coast guests may feel secluded with the wildlife that surrounds this community. The beach is only within a bike ride or walking distance that leads directly onto the beach. You literally get the beach as your backyard where all you can hear are the sound of the waves!

Another amazing spot to check out is Pier 21, located in the downtown area and has a great seafood restaurant, where you may dine and sit out on the bay or even take a boat ride at sunset. 

The Preserve is also close to the Seawall Boulevard, where many more restaurants like Mario’s Seawall Italian Restaurant and the Galveston’s Island Pleasure Pier is located.

The Preserve is just minutes from the Galveston Ferry that will take you across the bay to Port Bolivar, and to other local beaches, like Apffel Beach or better known as East Beach, or Stewart Beach. Both of these beaches offer rentals of umbrellas and chairs for the day.

The beaches in the surrounding area hold regular events, one of the largest being the annual AIA SandCastle Competition at Apffel Beach. every year in the summer months. Teams take months to come up with ideas and plan how they will build their masterpiece. On the day of the competition, teams are allowed five hours to make their creations come to life. These are not your ordinary sandcastles, though. So, bring your camera to capture all the cool sculptures that are brought to life by the teams!
