Wonderful beach side vacation on the west end of Galveston in Pirates Beach. Close to everything but away from the chaos. Pirates Beach is about 10 minutes from Downtown Galveston along the coast. A car would be required as it isn't within walking distance of amenities. Beach house with beach toys and lots of chairs to lounge. WIFI and DVDs. From the porch to the sand is about a 3 minute walk in the neighborhood.
