Cove Harbor Wetland and Boardwalk

Preserving Aransas County's Treasures for our future generations

Cove Harbor Boardwalk & Wetland

North Cove Harbor Wetland Sanctuary is just north of Cove Harbor Marina. You will see the parking lot for the sanctuary on the left. This is a 100 acre wetland that is owned by the Aransas County Navigation District and is leased to Aransas First. There is an 800 foot boardwalk that has a covered area and bench at the end.

This site is best in winter. It is very dependent on rain and tides. Shorebirds, Roseate Spoonbills, Rails, and Sparrows can be found here.

The boardwalk was heavily damaged by Hurricane Harvey and is currently awaiting reconstruction.  Repairs are expected to be completed by early 2020.
