We love to drive around look at the beautiful views. Sometimes you get lucky see the fish jump out of the water a few times we have seen dolphins near the university that was awesome! Good thing to do if you just want to cruise with Windows down.

Fun short ride over to Port Aransas. Drove down to North Padre. Very scenic. Found a few locations to pull of the Hwy and walk on the beach.

I really recommend doing this on a "lazy" day. We started at our hotel on the island and went up hwy 361 to the ferry (which is free). The ferry is short but pretty neat if u have never been on one. After the ferry we stayed on 361 for a short time and turned onto hwy 35 then hwy... More

My family of 5 stayed in Padre Island, but there's so much seaweed at the beaches. So we ventured to North Beach, near the USS Lexington, because we were told there's less seaweed there, but we weren't told about the jellyfish. Unfortunately, jellyfish are pretty common in this area. We went in the water and were having a great time... More

We chose this area to spend a day at the beach. The beach was clean, a few pieces of seaweed on the beach, the water was clear and the perfect temperature for swimming. But there were jellyfish everywhere I looked, in the water and the beach. We made the most of the day playing in the sand, but I couldn't... More

The island is beautifully situated in front of Corpus Christi. Beautiful and Unique nature, although we did really enjoined the scenery because of the foggy wheather

This is an awesome trip for beach bums and someone who like sand and sun ( which we do ). you can spend as long as you want at any given place as they are all nice and the pictures and scenery are gorgeous. There are lots of bars and food to be had. Most beaches here have washroom facilities... More
