Located 2 miles off the southern tip of Texas, it is connected to the mainland by the Queen Isabella Causeway.

The Island is only a few blocks wide, around 5 miles of City real estate, then you can drive north on the beach for nearly 30 miles of desolate beaches and beautiful sand dunes, until reaching the Port Mansfield jetties and boat channel. You don't even need a car, you can walk or bicycle, or ride the free shuttle.
