It is the only established town on Mustang Island, which is the longest barrier island in the world; as such, Port Aransas is surrounded by 18 miles of glorious, sandy beaches. Such long stretches of beach invite relaxing strolls, sand castle competitions, shelling or simply stretching out and lazing in the sun. Port Aransas bed and breakfasts are comfortable places to stay while enjoying all that the area has to offer.
It is hard to talk about Port Aransas and not mention birds; indeed, it has been named one of the "birdiest" cities in the United States.

Bird enthusiasts will definitely want to reserve time to visit the Port Aransas Wetland Park, Mustang Island State Park, and Padre Island.
