I grew up in the state of Maine so anything to do with the ocean is a go for me a lot of friendly people beautiful walk bare foot in the sand even took a little dip I give it a thumbs up very family friendly

Drive right onto the beach. One of the few places left where you can let your dog run on the beach, leash free. Loved it.
The only drawback was the Bolivar Car Ferry. It takes only a little time to get to the Bolivar side from the Galveston Island side, but when you want to come back, plan on spending 2 + hours in line. To drive around the bay to home would also take about 2 hours.
