“A nice diversion from the beach”

Owner description: This 1,500-foot boardwalk crosses four acres of marshland, where bird watchers can spot many coastal and migratory birds and numerous others tempted by the berries on the fiddlewood bushes along the trail

This nature trail, really a boardwalk over a wetland/marsh, is very nice and presents some great opportunities to see birds. While it is free, a birding club's boardwalk next to it is larger and you are supposed to make a donation to walk on it - seemed a bit like a bait and switch to us. This is one of the few things to do on South Padre that doesn't involve sitting on a beach, so I highly recommend it for an hour or two of activity.

Fun place to watch birds, ducks, etc. Very enjoyable early in the morning or late at night to avoid the sun. Loved closeness with nature and clean water.

This is a sanctioned wildlife nature trail. We saw all types of migrating birds and birds true to this area. Take binnoculars and water. There is a bit of walking involved. We saw migrating Monarch Butterflies and little lizards and a fox. Not really goo for children in strollers. Lisa Renwick

We saw some splendid birds in their natural habitat - ibis, tricolored and great herons, white egret, purple gallinule, black necked stilt, and more. Came back and watched the sunset!
