The Bolivar Peninsula is located in Galveston County in Texas and several communities are located here, including Port Bolivar, Caplen, Crystal Beach, High Island and Gilchrist. The peninsula has an interesting history, as it was named after Simon Bolivar in 1816, a Latin American political leader who led the independence movements in Colombia, Peru and Venezuela. It is also the notorious site used by pirates in the past and was a slave route between Galveston and Louisiana. Of interest to visit on the peninsula is the Point Bolivar Light, a historic lighthouse built in 1872 and located in Port Bolivar. The lighthouse was in operation up until 1933, when a new lighthouse was built on the same site. Fort Travis Park is of interest to history lovers and the whole family, as there is a historic fortress on the site, together with the remains of bunkers. The park has a children’s playground and is a popular picnic spot. For lovers of sun and sand, Crystal Beach is an ideal spot with restaurants and other facilities available to visitors. McFaddin National Wildlife Reserve is home to a variety of waterfowl and offers hunting, fishing, photography and wildlife watching options.
