Wonderful views of the shore. Lovely big homes. The drive starts on Shoreline then becomes Ocean Drive.

I took my grand kids on the beach loop when they were in town. They showed fascination in the wind turbines in Portland and I had never seen one that close. They actually make a humming noise. Then for my first time I saw dolphins jumping from the ferry.

This drive will take you through the main downtown park of corpus way out to its edges. Lots to see and places to stop for food or pictures. Try the original Whataburger on the seawall for an icecream!

While the loop does take you very close to the water, you can't actually SEE the water a lot of the way around. It's okay if you have nothing else on your agenda...

This is one of the best stretches on the loop with a number of parks and vantage points to stop by. Take a right off the Ocean Dr & merge onto HW... More

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
