Looking for beach camping.

I want to take the wife and kids to camp out on the beach. Somewhere we can build a firepit in the sand, and sit and watch the tide come in and the sunset. Anybody know of somewhere, or can you just go to any public beach and pitch a tent and build a camp fire? Thanks for the help!!!

For a true beach experience you can try the Padre Island National Seashore. The fire pit is out, however due to extreme drought.

Look here. www.nps.gov/pais/planyourvisit/camp.htm

Padre Island National Seashore is allowing BBQ pits but no open fires on the beach.

"Due to drought conditions, a burn ban is in effect. Only small charcoal cooking fires contained in a grill are allowed."
