Crystal-Beach , also known as Patton, is an area of the Bolivar Peninsula in southeast Texas. Rather than what the name implies, Bolivar Peninsula is actually a barrier island located off the southeast coast in Galveston County, Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population of the entire island was 2,417. Crystal Beach stretches for seven miles in the middle of the island along Texas Highway 87. It's a popular area for camping and fishing. Surf fishing is allowed at Crystal Beach, or you can fish from the areas at Rollover Fish Pass or from the rocks of the North Jetty. The marine migration between Galveston's East Bay and the Gulf of Mexico through nearby Rollover Pass means lots of fish near the shores of Carlen. The other communities on Bolivar Peninsula are Crystal Beach, Port Bolivar, Gilchrist and High Island. The peninsula is separated by less than three miles from Galveston Island, and free public ferries link Bolivar Peninsula with Galveston Island. Other activities include swimming, sunbathing, shelling, fishing, boating, hunting, beachcombing, and bird watching. Accommodations on the island include vacation rentals, RV Parks, motels and camping.
