“Very beautiful beaches”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Gorgeous beaches, very clean, lots of area. The sun rise and sunsets were incredible. Too cold to play in the water but fun to walk along the beach.

“Great Time”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Even though the weather was not cooperating our 2 1/2 year old had a great time running from the incoming waves, and building sand castles. There was a wash off area, and numerous picnic tables. The volunteers in the information building were very friendly and helpful. Wish we had more time!

“Unspoiled seashore at its best”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Padre Island Seashore is definitely a treasure. The miles of unspoiled beaches make for an enjoyable stroll. Taking in the sight of large sand dunes, uncluttered beaches and the sea breezes is always a welcome respite from hectic city life and sprawl.

“Awesome fishing.”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

If you have a 4x4 vehicle this place is awesome for fishing. Even if you don't, fishing is still good at the 2WD area. The real treat is if you have a 4x4 and you are confident enough to travel down to Big Shell which is about 25 miles of beach driving. You will be rewarded with great fishing, redfish, trout, pompano, whiting, sharks, and many other fish. Pretty much anywhere you fish whiting are plentiful.
