Talk about luxury beachfront living! Beachtown,  is one of Galveston Island’s newest subdivisions, inspired by Galveston’s rich Victorian architectural heritage, this master-planned community developed by world-renowned, Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company offers walking and bike paths and is defined by a genuine town center. Beachtown offers homes valued over a million dollars. Most of these homes have multiple decks that make the most of the views. The beach leads out to warm Gulf of Mexico water and is close to Galveston Bay where ships come into port at Galveston and Houston.

Beachtown is one of the rare beaches on Galveston island where they are growing wider rather than shrinking. Growing at several feet per year, the widening beaches are among the many natural gifts and ecological wonders of this very special place by the sea. Beachtown is also located between Stewart Beach and Porretto Beach to the West and R.A. Apffel or better known as East Beach to the East.

These beaches hold regular events, one of the largest, being the annual AIA Sandcastle Competition at Apffel Beach every year in the summer months. Each team take months to come up with ideas and planning 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, so bring your camera!

Beachtown is close to all the excitement, attractions and restaurants in town. Galveston’s Historic Pleasure Pier and Galveston Historic Strand District are only a little over a mile away!
