We were there during the weekend there was hardly a crowd. There were restrooms along the beach. It was very clean and quiet.

We were in town for a college soccer game, but spent Saturday on the beach. We were able to drive our car right on the beach, had everything we needed for the day. It was a peaceful day - not crowded at all!

The beach is nice place but the ocean is polluted with plastic bags and other garbage. I hope people (public) would be more considerate by not throwing plastic bags, beer bottles, cans and other children plastic play stuffs or let is wash away. I have...More

Good place to visit on a Saturday after the summer rush. Rentals of umbrellas are cheap. Family atmosphere

You can park on this beach and not have anyone next to you all day long. Love it! Wide and clean with beautiful clear water

This was worth the 15 min drive. Very few people on the beach. Parked along the surf, pitched a canopy and hung out for the day with little to know traffic.

Nice beach across from our hotel. Wasn’t crowded at all. Our family enjoyed the ocean and beach. Not too commercialized either!

This little island has everything you need. Fishing, surfing and great breakfast. It’s also operates on island time so if you’re looking for a relaxing and inexpensive vacation without the crowds of Padre island then look no further.

I think you would do better to come to North Padre or even Mustang Island which is just north of North Padre Island. Mustang Island has many more hotels on the beach than North Padre does. Another idea would be to rent an RV... More
