I walk these beaches almost every morning. Great sunrises (faces East). I go from Packery Channel to Bob Hall pier, as these beaches are kept up by heavy equipment. This keeps seaweed to a minimum.

We booked a condo here on a whim. I couldn't be happier with the 4 days we spent on the island. We were able to get up each morning, and drive a block down to park on the beach about 10 yards from where the...More

We tried South Padre Island and North Padre Island. No comparison we would return to North Padre Island. It is a great place to unwind.

North Padre Island is a Texas hidden secret. It is way under developed which I really like. If this island was in California or Florida it would be pack with condos. The island offers many outstanding restaurants which I have reviewed on TripAdvisor. Also on...More
