“Nice body of water for bird watching”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We stayed right on the Laguna Madre and watched the birds every morning. It was wonderful and peaceful. You want to stay clear of the refinery though- it smells.

“Nice, but beware of the Jellies!”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

It's really nice, but just beware of the jellyfish. They are everywhere! If you want to swim, go further on North Padre Island drive where the water is a bit more rough. The jellies seem to like the water that is still. Pretty view.

“good fishing spot”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Good fishing but you need to know where to fish so take someone knowledgeable or hire a fishing guide if it's your first time.

“Very Beautiful”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

The Laguna Madre is the body of water between North Padre Island and the mainland. When I was there the tempature was 85 degres (Not bad for early November) and the water was a spectaular shade of blue/green. The fishing was incredible. Redfish and Speckled Trout. The Intercoastal Waterway runs along the eastern shore and huge ships traverse up and down. The eating is great (Doc's Seafood) with a fantastic view of the water. Lodging is inexpensive but very nice. I will be returning soon
