If you like a natural well preserved eco-system you will love this place. Ideal for boat or windsurf sailing. I recommend to go to the Padre Island National Seashore Park to Worldwinds Windsurfing, there you will find the best rigs in the area.

Wonderful escape to nature. Great place to motorboat the intercoastway all the way down past Baffin Bay. Loads of fish and birds. Try it during the week when crowds are gone.

What an amazing area full of natural wildlife and serene shorelines. Waters run deep here and this should be a stop if you have a boat,

the world famous laguna madre has certainly lived up to its reputation. i was able to land speckled trout, red fish and flounder all in the same day.

This body of "hypersaline" water is trapped between the gulf and land and ends up saltier than ocean water due to evaporation. Its good for fishing and boating on a calmer surface than the open gulf but some of the coastal areas on the island side can be bug infested during summer months; brings lots of bug spray!

Nothing better, by yourself, with friends, or with a party. This is it! I especially like the early mornings or the afternoons. No sunburn, wonderful breezes and the beauty of the water. Enjoy!

First time here for us. The food was good. I thought the view was beautiful. It is not a place that ou need to dress up for, pretty relaxed atmosphere. Would return again.

If you love water, you will love the Laguna Madre. No matter the time of the day or the condition of the weather, there are people fishing and recreating on the water. Love this area.
