Magnolia Beach is an unincorporated community in Calhoun County, Texas, United States. It is located along the waterfront of Lavaca Bay, southeast of Alamo Beach.[1] The community is part of the Victoria, Texas Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The settlement's history dates back to the late 19th century. The word Magnolia was added to the beach name to suggest the beauty of the setting since magnolias grow locally.[1] Today, Magnolia Beach is a lightly populated, but developing bay front community.
