When you think of Texas beaches, I'm sure you don't think - blue waters, soft sand, and beautiful views, right? I wouldn't blame you - all my life, I've been convinced that the only beautiful beaches were on the West or East Coast. Little did I know that I have just been going to the wrong beaches!
We stayed at Lively Beach on Mustang Island a couple of weekend ago, and it was clear that everything I thought and assumed about Texas beaches was completely wrong. Not to mention, the Lively Beach Resort elevated our Texas beach experience to another level.
If you're looking for a nice beach vacation without having to travel too far, here is everything you need to know before going to Lively Beach.

Lively Beach is only a 4 hour drive from Houston, TX. The area is also littered with great restaurants and shops too. Check out our blog post on where to eat in Corpus Christi on North Padre Island here.
There are different types of rooms and suites. All are equipped with a fully stocked kitchen - pots, pans, wine glasses, Keurig, etc. Be sure to get a room with a balcony to enjoy your coffee on while watching the sunrise. No ice is provided but they do stock the fridge with bottled water and Topo Chico.
The ground floor studios are dog-friendly, so your pup can get some beach time too!
Check-in is completely seamless and contact-free. The spacious amenities also allow for social distancing.
They have multiple grills all around the property. Be sure to bring food to grill! (A fire pit is also in the works, so you'll want to bring s'mores ingredients once it's finished.)
Everyone has access to the Sky Deck, which provides a 360 view of the surrounding areas.
The hotel also has private beach access, and it's just a five minute walk down!
Aside from going to the beach, you an enjoy some fun in the sun at their on-site pool. It is massive.
Finally, make sure to bring beach towels and plenty of sunscreen!
A big, BIG thank you to Lively Beach for our stay. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
