Review of Gulf Waters RV Resort
Just 5 miles south of Port Aransas is a new (2007) and fantastic RV resort – Gulf Waters Beach Front Resort. Gulf Waters is a condominium resort, meaning all sites are privately owned and governed by the By-laws of the Property Owners Association. Owners have the option of adding their site to a rental pool when they are not using it, which means that sites are available to buy, rent, or for a stay as an overnight guest.
Gulf Waters has done a excellent job of landscaping the entire Resort by adding palm trees, grass, freshwater ponds, plants, and flowers. In addition, some of the site owners have added their own structures, landscaping, and amenities to their individual site. Some of these enhancement include: stone grills and cooking areas, wet bars, stone work, flowering plants, and shrubs – all of which are very well done and further enhance the beauty of the Resort.
Another advantage of Gulf Waters is that it is away from the hustle and bustle of the city, provides all of the modern conveniences, yet is close enough for day trips to Port Aransas and Corpus, and only a 2 to 3 hour drive to San Antonio, Houston, or Mexico.

We love staying at Gulf Waters Beach Front RV Resort because of it's peacefulness, friendly atmosphere, and convenient location to lots to see and do. On our typical three day stay, we will spend a day exploring the Rockport/Fulton area and Port Aransas.
In Port A, we like to park the car and bike everywhere - to the beach, to the park and along the jetty and marina, and to the restaurants and bars. Last time we visited the beach, there were three kite surfers and it was fun watching them ride the waves and catch some air. If you have time take a lesson from Third Coast Kitesurfing - what a fun and very thrilling sport. The beach has a long jetty that is good for fishing or a short walk. Port A is loaded with funky and fun bars and some good restaurants. Check out our Port A map which also has a link to our Top Ten Things To See & Do in Port A.
The next day we spend recovering which means some pool, hot tub, and beach time. Our beach time consists of some beach games (darts, Frisbee golf, washers, and boccie ball), biking along the surf, kite flying (which typically results in kite wars and broken kites!), and swimming in the warm water.
The third day we like exploring Corpus Christi to enjoy their good restaurants; bike along the waterfront which offers beautiful views of the marinas, boats, bay, and city skyline; visit the aquarium or USS Lexington; and end the evening at Brewster Ice House for good music, good times, and cold beer. Use this Corpus Christi Map to find lots of fun stuff to do.
As mentioned earlier, Gulf Waters Beach Front RV Resort is conveniently located to lots to see and do. Port Aransas is less that 5 minutes, Rockport and Fulton are 10 miles from the Port Aransas ferry, and Corpus Christi is about 35 minutes from the Resort.
Port A is well known as a center for bay, flats, jetty, surf, and offshore fishing. If you didn't come across the ferry, it's kinda fun to ride it across and back and watching the surfing dolphins. We enjoy biking around the city and to the beach. You can also drive or camp on the beach. There are a number of good restaurants and some very fun local bars. See the Texas Outside Port A map to learn more about Port A.
We spent a few hours biking and exploring Rockport and Fulton on our last trip and found a fun restaurant/bar, great bike ride along the bay and into a beautiful residential district with huge homes, boats, and a waterfront cafe and bar in the marina - a perfect place to take a break and enjoy lunch and a drink. Here is a link to more info on Fulton and Rockport. If you like birdwatching, you're going to love Rockport and Port A.
We enjoy exploring Corpus, which is also well know for it's fishing. We like to bike along the seawall, visit the aquarium and USS Lexington, and play golf. To learn more about Corpus take a look at our Corpus Christi Map,
Just down the road, Arnold Palmer has built a fantastic signature 18 hole golf course called Newport Dunes and if you're a golfer, you have got to play a round on the very unique and fantastic golf course. Read our review of Newport Dunes Golf Course.
Enjoy your stay at Gulf Waters - plan on spending a few extra days to enjoy the Resort and explore the area.
