I came to this pier with my dad. It's always been a good place to fish. Lots of memories, with access to beaches and Padre Island National Seashore.

Well, for one thing we just wanted to take a look and browse the pier. We were not going to fish but least we could see what it was about for our next visit, disappointing that they were going to charge us just to look in and take a quick 10 minute stroll or so. Not what we expected at... More

If you want to see people fishing or do some of your own its a great place. You can get something to eat, snack, relax or just watch the sun come up over the water in the morning. It is on the beach but driving is not a problem and plenty of parking.

I have a personal connection with this pier since it's one that I've experienced over and over again since childhood. I fished here many times in my childhood and youth along with my father. Yet even now I can't resist walking the length of the pier and feeling the presence of the sea all around me. It's nice to chat... More

Bob Hall Pier is famous for fishing and they charge for entry. There is a long, long beach area here with nearby restrooms and showers, and a restaurant with good food. It's fun to watch people on this pier (which is like a road and I'm not exaggerating). Nearby, you can ask for accessible beach wheelchairs that go in the... More

You don't need a pass here. There are restrooms, albeit not the nicest. .. but better than peeing in the water or dunes. There's paved parking. Always crowded so get there early to claim a picnic table.

If you wish to see the Texas coast, play on the beach, make some s'mores, go fishing, enjoy some nightlife, and even go camping, you found it!
