What to say about the Seawall! The Seawall is awesome! Make sure you wear good shoes and also bring a towel! The Seawall protects the island of Galveston from the Gulf you can go down onto the beach from several places on the Seawall and walk along the beach or even get in the water! Love the Granite Slabs there also that you can lay down on!

If you've seen a beach before you can skip this one - it is not anything special. Head instead to The Strand or to do some exploring downtown where you can find some great local restaurants, antique shops and unique shopping. The Seawall will show you the sea, and some mostly run-down hotels, chain restaurants, and an amusement park (like any other) over the water (Paradise Pier). There is so much more to Galveston - be sure this is not your only stop!

The seawall is a place for sightseeing, beach walking, and generally enjoying and breathing in the atmosphere of Galveston. The city is always trying to update the area and make it even more user friendlly.

Walking on the beach was great until we saw the rats... It was so romantic walking on the Seawall then down the steps - I really like how much more sand there is but what we thought were birds were Rats - that is a mood killer... lol so no sitting on the beach!

You can walk or drive along the eight mile long Galveston seawall. We were there in early October and the crowds were all gone therefore it felt like you were having the place to yourself. The traffic problems found during the summer months were not to be. The surf was rolling in accompanied by strong winds therefore you could get the mist covering you and walking was not really a choice so we drove. The businesses area across from the seawall have made significant strides since the last hurricane with many new structures and lots of renovation. Only a few structures remain that have not been renovated.
