San Luis resort
Prior to 1783, when Bernardo de Gálvez dispatched a ship to explore what is now known as Galveston Bay, Galveston Island was called San Luis. The origin of the name is shrouded in historical mystery, though it is known that the Island also had been called San Louis, Culebra, and Campeche before Gálvez so honored it with his name.
It is believed that the name San Luis was chosen either by French explorer Sieur de la Salle’s settlement in Texas or by Spanish explorer Luis de Moscoso during a journey along the coast from the mouth of the Mississippi River to Mexico.


While precise historical significance may be lost to antiquity, the name San Luis is very much a part of Galveston lore.

The name was selected for Galveston’s premiere beachfront resort to reflect the adventurous spirit of the early explorers, and to help perpetuate a grain of Island history.
