Big Shell Bikes bestows coastal riders with maintained bicycles for self-propelled adventures through the scenic area. Riders can climb atop cruiser-style bikes such as women’s medium Huntington Beach bike or men’s large Electra Cruisers to propel themselves around Port Aransas’ awe-inducing views of sandy shores, rolling waves, and heavily guarded sand castles. Big Shell maintains its fleet of pedal-powered transports with only industry-known cruiser-brand parts, such as Schwinn and Huffy, to ensure smooth, solid rides. Additionally, Grouponers can opt to apply their vouchers toward the rental of a sand bike ($53 a day), an eight-speed steed equipped with thick tires designed to glide through sandy shores without bogging down or accumulating itchy grains between bike crevices.

The accommodating staff at Island Surf Shop and Kayaks rents out a large selection of beach buggies, skillfully coupling wayward beachcombers with a coast-exploring vehicle. Hop into your sand-flecked buggie to discover the dune-hugged beaches of Port Aransas, a town on the northern tip of Mustang Island, replete with brightly hued beach houses, trilling seabirds, and coin-operated sandcastle-building machines. Each one-hour rental outfits sandfaring customers in a shaded, four-seater golf cart fitted with oversized beach-ready tires. Rentals are subject to weather conditions, so plan your adventure on a day with a low chance of raindrops or gumdrops hailstorms.
