St. Jo's Beach

Map
900 N. Tarpon St., Port Aransas, TX 78373, United States

This 21-mile-long barrier atoll has miles of beautiful empty shoreline. Fishermen can drop a line for trout or redfish near the S.S. John Worthington shipwreck, a World War II tanker that was sunk in the Lydia Ann Channel between Port Aransas and St. Jo’s in an effort to create an artificial reef. Or bring binoculars to spot brown pelicans and long-billed curlews. The beach is easily accessible from Port Aransas via a five-minute ride on a jetty boat that runs from the pier at Fisherman’s Wharf. Jetty boat tickets: $12 for adults and $6 for children.
