Follet's Island is a barrier island on the Texas Gulf Coast in Brazoria County, Texas, immediately southwest of Galveston Island. Follet's Island separates the Christmas Bay system from the Gulf of Mexico, making it one of a chain of barrier islands running along most of the Texas coast. The island is roughly 13 miles (21 km) long and has a maximum elevation of about 3.5 feet (1.1 m) above mean sea level. The southwestern tip of the island is occupied by the city of Surfside Beach, Texas.
