Texas' first Blue Wave Beach!
Texas Beach Watch - Texas Beach Watch is a program funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and administered by the Texas General Land Office to monitor water quality at Texas' recreational beaches. When bacteria levels in the water exceed the acceptable standards established by the EPA, the GLO works with local governments to issue advisories warning the public not to swim in affected waters.
Clean Beaches - The Clean Beaches Coalition (CBC) is a network of coastal organizations and individuals committed to promoting clean, healthy and well managed beaches around the world.
The Rockport Beach waters (Little Bay, Saltwater Pavilion, North and South Rockport Beach) are tested twice a week for bacteria and the results are posted on the TexasBeachWatch.com website. They are also available at our entry booth and office. In the event of a high reading, there are signs in those locations to indicate the same.
NOTE: Dogs/pets & glass containers are NOT allowed on the Rockport Beach.
The Rockport, Fulton, Cove Harbors will have power until the storm surge pushes waters over the piers. At that point shore power will be turned off. Personnel will be on call for EMERGENCIES ONLY.
The Rockport Beach & its boat ramp will be closed beginning 11pm tonight (8/24/2017) and will remain closed through the weekend.
If you bring your own sand bags and shovels, sand will be available for free on Water Street where the ACND contruction project is (behind the downtown merchants).
