A hidden gem near The Woodlands, quaint Surfside sits on the Gulf of Mexico
. This inviting beach boasts remarkably blue waters and white shores. Clean and often thronged with families, much of the beach will leave you in the mood for old-fashioned fun. Casual eateries such as Pirate’s Alley and Jetty Shack serve burgers, fish tacos, and other beach fare with a Beaver Cleaver wholesomeness. It is not hard, however, to slip away and find a quiet stretch of sand to yourself.
