Born as a weekend playground in 1956, Jamaica Beach prospered during the booming economy of its early years, only to falter in the early 70s when the founding corporation suffered a bankruptcy.

But many of the early homeowners love living by the sea, and with grit and determination, they fought their tribulation, pooled their varied resources and formed the foundation of the community of today. Their efforts culminated in 1975 with the incorporation of Jamaica Beach as a General Law City in the State of Texas.
