If you like walking over the water, admiring the Laguna, fishing or watching others fish or enjoying a nice sunrise or sunset, this place is for you. Nice 30-min to an hour stop!

We ended our evening from the island here on the pier. If I remember correctly, our friend rented poles, and bought some bait. Had we been prepared, we would have brought an ice chest for fish caught, and one for snacks and drinks. (Check drink restrictions, I cannot remember?) Also, our own poles/bait. However, we were there when the sun... More

This is a great place for a scenic walk to watch the water and the people on the pier fishing. From the pier you can see South Padre Island. Worth checking out if you are in the area.

We enjoyed when we went there with sea beach and the only problem we had was the rain, it rained heavily. When returning back you get a check post where you have to show your... More

This is a very scenic place to just hang out and watch the water views and the birds. Lots of people fishing and there were plenty of places to stop for a cold beer or something to eat. Worth checking out if you are in the area.

This is a nice, quiet spot to take a walk in the evenings. Close to the parking lot. Not a long pier, so it is a quick walk.
