Seaweed has been washing in daily since mid-May. The amount is excessive. The tide has not been high enough to push it far enough on shore to be collected. We are getting as close as allowable with our equipment but still much remains. It is not possible to walk across the seaweed to reach the water without sinking into the silt created by the deteriorating seaweed. Please consider this before you make reservations. We will update when conditions improve.
Quintana Park offers day use facilities perfect for your family outing. Beginning with a half mile of pedestrian beach for your safety. Shade palapas are available on the beach and restrooms and outdoor showers are in close proximity to the beach.
The east end of the beach ends with the Quintana jetty; the west jetty for the Freeport ship channel. The jetty is popular for fishing, bird watching or just strolling and watching the ships come in or the dolphins play.
The west end of the beach features a lighted fishing pier. The pier may be accessed after dark outside of the park by vehicle. Surf fishing is allowed anywhere along the beach. Fishing license is required while fishing anywhere in the park.
There are plenty of activities to fill your day aside from enjoying the beach. A large playground, a sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, hiking trails, picnic tables and grills. You may borrow game equipment at no charge. Check the events schedule to plan your trip if you are looking for something extra!
