Jamaica Beach, Texas, United States

Quite neighborhood w/fabulous amenities: you can drive onto the beach for FREE (it's only 6-7 block walk to the beach but you must cross a fairly busy 4 lane road), boat launch for fishing/kayaking ($10 permit required purchase at Jamaica Beach City Hall), FREE playground, basketball court & picnic tables, $5/pp community pool/splashpad. See City of Jamaica Beach website for more details.

Jamaica Beach has 2 convenient stores, 2 churches, a coffee bar, a liquor store, a bar, grill/pizzeria, Subway, at the front entrance and other restaurants within 1-2 miles.

Jamaica Beach, Texas, began as a weekend fishing getaway in 1956 and incorporated as a full-fledged city, separate and apart from the City of Galveston in 1975. In addition to the beach itself, you can also find a unique beach campground, an RV park, condos, and a resort. In addition to the gorgeous vacation rentals and nearby Galveston real estate, you can also find beach camping here.

Jamaica Beach Galveston is also known by locals and frequent island visitors as Jamaica Bay Galveston, Jamaica Island, and west Jamaica Beach. However, each of these references all refer to the same coastal city and neighborhood on Galveston Island.

With a population of around 1,000 citizens, Jamaica Beach is an alternative to other Galveston locations, with its own city hall, police department, volunteer fire department, EMS, park, public beach, municipal pool, and boat launch ramp.

There are approximately 500 canal, beachfront, dry land and bayfront homes in the city and they range from small cottages to high-end contemporary homes.

The city is just west of Galveston Island State Park and 12 miles west of 61st Street in Galveston. Groceries, gas, restaurants, and shops are within walking distance.

If you ever hear someone ask the question "Is Jamaica Beach in Galveston nice?", make sure to answer with a resounding "yes". Between the Jamaica Beach rules and many things to do in Jamaica beach Galveston, it's a vacation and long-term coastal stay worth experiencing.
