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

Very nice drive around Corpus Christi and the surrounding areas. Would definitely recommend this in order to get your bearings and see more of the coast. Provided a break from a hectic weekend and a very beautiful drive...

Beautiful turquoise waters. Swam out for a while then suddenly realized I could stand up. Started swimming back and started panicking as there are sharks in the water. (11ft tiger sharks). Did forget my sun tan lotion so I got absolutely scorched by the sun but the beach is just beautiful. Toilets are disgusting though!

Scenic and free but I would say this is made out to be way more than it really is. A tour guide recommended we do this as a fun time... 2 hours of driving mind you. and this ferry ride is nothing special, you don't even get out of your car.

Love the free parking and statues. There are lots of shops and places to get a drink. Swimming areas are well marked.
