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.

Loop is pretty and you get to see the ocean or the bay almost the whole time. There is also a small free car ferry trip that you take which was fun for us first timers.

This is a really fun loop if you go at the right time of year. Since we are locals we seldom like to be caught up in the 'seasonal' traffic, but truly enjoy this ride during the off times when the roads are quiet. If you go during the thick of beach season you will spend more time trying to... More

This was our first trip to cc. We always go to the Galveston area, but decided to change it up a bit this year. Needless to say, Corpus Christi will not be graced with my presence ever again! The "hottest spot" right there by the Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium, is disgusting.. That's the best word I can find.... More

A great place to go for a walk, relax and enjoy the view. There's also a few areas for the kids to play.
