Quiet beaches. Lower humidity. Great Rates! What’s not to love? Going to the beach in the fall may seem counterintuitive, but it’s actually one of the best times to visit Port Aransas. Instead of sharing the beach with other tourists, you’ll have more privacy and tranquility on the beloved Texas coastline. Instead of waiting in longer lines at restaurants, you’ll enjoy faster service and quieter atmospheres. And since Port A is relatively warm year round, you’ll likely still enjoy a sun-kissed tan – without the discomfort of the scorching summer heat!

You can also enjoy some beach activities with slightly cooler temperatures that wouldn’t be as enjoyable in the middle of summer. Here are some ways we think you’d enjoy spending time on the Port Aransas beach this fall:

Cozy up with a campfire

In Port Aransas, small campfires (3ft. x 3ft.) are allowed. Cooler temperatures provide the perfect time to sit around a fire with loved ones, roast marshmallows, and enjoy good music and conversation. Don’t forget to completely extinguish your campfire area with water when finished!

Go for a Run or a Walk

Take advantage of cooler weather with a nice run or walk along the beach. Running or walking is a great for your mental and physical health – and even more so on the gorgeous shoreline of Port Aransas! Be sure to bring a water bottle and stay hydrated.

Have a Fall Picnic

With fall temperatures, you won’t have to worry as much about food spoiling on a beach picnic. Kick off the autumn season by having a picnic laden with harvest fruits and vegetables that reach their peak in the fall months. Some picnic-friendly fall fare could include:

  • Apples with peanut butter
  • Fresh figs with nuts
  • Pears with cheese
  • Bell peppers with hummus
  • Kale salad

After Labor Day, most people are not thinking about the beach, which is why you can turn a slice of Port A into your own private paradise. Going to Port Aransas this fall might just provide the rest and relaxation you’ve been looking for. Check availability and pricing on our beautiful condos here.
