I lived in Hawaii before moving to Texas. I concur, there are NO good beaches here.

This is like comparing prime rib to ground chuck. It doesn't mean ground chuck doesn't exist. I believe the question was what are the best in Texas, not as compared to the best in the world. Sure there are nicer beaches as well as nicer mountains and forest than here. I can drive 20 miles to a nice beach or fly for two to 12 hours to a nicer beach. I'll take the half hour drive. Some of the best beaches in Texas can only be reached by boat.
FWIW: I was in Galveston this weekend for Mardi Gras and the Sandpiper RV resort I read about is small and cramped. But it is just yards away from Stewart Beach, my LEAST favorate beach.

Lots of college students go there for spring break, hopefully they'll be gone when you get there.

Actually, there is a lot in Galveston. Enough to keep a person occupied for a while. While Galveston is not a beautiful place, I like to call it funky with tons of character.

They just opened up the amusement pier also where the old Flagship hotel stood over the gulf.

Is it open? It looked like they were still working on it. That's where they had the old Pleasure Pier that was wiped out by Carla.

CORRECTION: Opening May 2012! I haven't been down to see it and just heard part of the story, thought it just opened.
