Look closely, this was written in the sand from Rockport Beach Park.

Who said Rockport-Fulton doesn’t have a beach?  The Award Winning Rockport Blue Wave Beach Park is a 5 minute drive down the road from the Bungalows so if you’re staying with us and feel the urge to build a sand castle, we have you covered. The Rockport Beach is a place where you can swim, fish, picnic and is considered a bird sanctuary.

This weekend you’ll find muscle cars, foreign, Mgs, race cars and even pre-1941 antique cars at the 19th Annual Rockport Sports and Classic Auto Show at the Rockport Beach Park. There will be judging, vendors and there’s even an opportunity to sell your car. Click the orange Auto Show link above for information. If you’re our guests this weekend and you’re a sucker for beautiful cars, add this as a must do to your day. It’s a simple and short few minute drive to the auto show from our Bungalows.

It’s a beautiful sunny and 78 degrees out today in Fulton, TX. A perfect day for a bike ride along Aransas Bay.

One thing you can count on in Fulton, TX? There’s no shortage of picture perfect bird moments. Bring your camera next time you visit. These photos were taken just to the right of our Palapas. Photography and Birding go hand and hand here. This is what you want to try next time you’re here Whooping Crane Tours with our friend Captain Tommy Moore. You’ll board his boat just down the street from our Bungalows.

You’ve just gotten back from a day of fishing in Aransas Bay, taken a dolphin tour or spent the day scoping out the whooping cranes. Now it’s time to relax and share the stories from today’s adventures.

Here’s a place to consider doing just that.

In the morning you can go on another adventure, or spend the day doing, well…nothing.

You’re always welcome at The Fulton Beach Bungalows.

Seeing our sign from this angle? Then you’ve got a great view! You’re on Fulton Beach Road and Aransas Bay is just a few feet to your right. Did we mention that our palapas are at the water’s edge and they are a great place to see full moons rising? If that sounds like a plan so will our Full Moon Special for March 18th and 19th…it involves a future free night stay at The Bungalows.

View that special HERE

When it came to restoring the bungalows, staying true to it’s era when decorating was very important to us. Before buying the bungalows, Gene and I were antiques dealers which came in very handy. What we didn’t have, we found and with a lot of love and after a long journey, the bungalows are what you see today; a must stay for adults visiting Fulton Beach. We are super friendly, so if you want to join us under a palapa for drinks and great conversation, you don‘t have to twist our arms. On the other hand, our feelings won’t be hurt if you want to keep to yourselves.  Enjoy these pictures of Bungalow #8 ‘Butterflies & Dragonflies.’ When you are done, check out our free night special here.

Are you a Full Moon Aficionado?

Do you have a Full Moon Fetish, believing that it’s charm has magical powers, or do you just enjoy watching the big orange ball as it ascends the night sky and shines down on Aransas Bay?

If so, then you need to reserve a Bungalow on the weekend of March 18th & 19th to get your “Full Moon Fix”! There’s nothing prettier, more romantic or peaceful…and our palapas are the best unobstructed view in Fulton.

Guests who reserve a bungalow and mention the Full Moon Special will receive a gift certificate to return in August for a free night stay at the Bungalows. Some restrictions apply so you will need to call 361-790-9108 for details or email us info@fultonbeach.com

The best place to enjoy a full moon rising in Texas? Our front yard. No kidding. Back in 1997, Gene and I headed to Fulton Beach to watch the full moon rising over the water. It’s one of my favorite pastimes. While down here, we happened upon an old dilapidated and uninhabited vintage 1940’s style tourist court that ran along Prairie Rd down out to the water. Immediately I was enchanted and couldn’t get the property out of my mind. The following year, we came back down to Fulton Beach and drove over to see if the tourist court was still there. Not only was it still there but out in the front yard was a For Sale sign.  To make a long story short, 14 years later, visitors know the 1940’s tourist court today as ‘The Fulton Beach Bungalows.’ There’s more to the story, but Gene and I will save it for your next visit to the Bungalows and maybe over some oysters and a beer. For now, enjoy a short video a guest took of the moon out over the water at the Fulton Pier.

A neat video a guest took of the boats bringing in their oysters, taking them off the boat and getting them ready to sell to the restaurants.

How many oysters do you think fit in one oyster sack? This video was filmed right down the street from our Bungalows.

It is that time of year again and what better time to start our blog than Oysterfest?!

What’s Oysterfest you ask?

Why, it is a festival  in Fulton, Texas for you oyster loving folks out there looking for any excuse to stuff yourself with these bites of deliciousness from the sea. And to be honest, Oysterfest isn’t just for oyster lovers. Guests will enjoy great food, a parade, carnival and of course oyster eating and shucking contests. This year will mark the 32nd Oysterfest which is sponsored by the Fulton Volunteer Fire Department.Oysterfest is the first week , March 3rd – 6th  at the Fulton Navigation Park.  Visit the official Oysterfest website for event times and happenings here: www.fultonoysterfest.org

STAY at The Fulton Beach Bungalows…

and walk or ride a bike down Fulton Beach road (it’s about 1/2 mi – down the road and the view of the water is beautiful along the way) to Oysterfest PLUS check out the OYSTER DINNER SPECIAL we created for our guests.  Of course we are a little biased but there really is no better place to stay in Fulton Beach, Texas than the bungalows. You’ll get your own bungalow with a full sized kitchen, screened porch and backyard for grilling. We restored these bungalows to honor their true vintage charm. We know you’ll love them and you will love the view! We are right on the water. Many  places say it but just to prove it, we created an album on our Facebook page of pictures taken of the view we drink coffee to every morning.
