At a two-hour drive outside the city, this expansive beach along Highway 87 and the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge is a bit of a hike to get to. But it's absolutely worth it for those who want to escape the crowds.You won't find a shower or lifeguard here. In fact, you won't find much of anyone. Even on warm holiday weekends, there might only be a dozen or so people in view with plenty of space in between.
