For other uses, see San José Island A map of San José Island. San Jose Island[1] or San José Island (also known as Saint Joseph Island) is a barrier island on the Gulf Coast of Texas in the United States. The island is about 21 miles (34 km) long and 5 miles (8 km) wide. The island is oriented generally northeast-southwest, with the Gulf of Mexico on the east and south, Aransas Bay on the west, and Mesquite Bay on the north. At the southern end of the island is Aransas Pass (not to be confused with the City of Aransas Pass which is on the mainland), beyond which is Mustang Island and the town of Port Aransas. Aransas Pass is protected by jetties extending into the Gulf from both Mustang Island and San José Island. The island's northern end used to be separated from Matagorda Island by Cedar Bayou. Cedar Bayou does not run freely through the two islands any longer. Although the island has been the site of military forts and towns in the past, it is largely uninhabited today. History July 26th, 1845 - Lt. Chandler of the USS Alabama waded ashore and planted the first American flag to fly over Texas territory on a sand dune on San Jose Island, Units of the Third Infantry established temporary quarters on the island. October 28th, 2009 - United States Navy pilot Lt. John Joseph Houston and Lt Bret Travis Miller lost communication with Naval Air Station Corpus Christi and were believed to have crash landed in the ocean near the St Jose Island coast, the body search ended November 7th, 2009 with only plane debris found along the coast. Shipwrecks Buried on St. Joseph Island across from Rockport are ornaments and gold that were designed for a Vera Cruz cathedral. Another treasure on St. Joseph Islands near the southern end is payroll that was intended for Spanish soldiers.
