Emerald by the Sea is strategically located at the intersection of Seawall and Broadway Boulevards on the site where the historic Jack Tar Hotel once stood. The building majestically stands across the street from Stewart Beach, one of Galveston's premier beaches. Guests of the Good Day Sunshine condo will relish the magnificent view of the sunrise in the morning from an enormous balcony. Sit and enjoy a quiet sunrise and watch the beach come to life every day. Take in the salty sea air as you listen to the laughing gulls and watch the pelicans fly overhead in military-style precision. The Emerald 712 is a south facing unit with an unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico. In the distance, guests will also see ships, tankers and other various sailing vessels as they enter and exit the Port of Galveston from the eastern most points off Galveston Island. The Emerald is within close proximity to the Historic Strand District, as well as the Pleasure Pier entertainment area, amazing restaurants, nightlife, shopping areas, and the Galveston area hospitals, just to name a few.
