Port A - there is a car ferry from Aransas Pass

In order to get to the good beach (grey water though), you need to take 361 from Aransas Pass. The car ferry surprised my hostess, who was used to Corpus Christi or South Padre beaches - no ferry there. We took the ferry as pedestrians, then took a taxi to and from the beach. Not cheap - the taxi was $8 each way, although parking where we were in the 'centre of things' was only for those with special passes.

Despite that, I enjoyed our three hours on the beach.
