“70 miles of protected coastline”
The longest Stretch of Undeveloped Barrier Island in The World, Rich in Natural and Cultural History With 70 miles of protected coastline, including a coastal prairie, a dynamic dune system, wind tidal flats teeming with life. A sanctuary and nesting grounds for the endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtle. A haven for 380 species of birds, a rich cultural history including the 1554 Spanish shipwrecks; and the Laguna Madre, one of the few hypersaline lagoon environments left in the world.
We spent a few days tent camping on the beach with the kids. A small amount of trash and a lot of space to drive down the beach and pitch a tent.
Loved driving on this stretch of beach. Must have 4 wheel, we were there in January and I felt like we were driving on our own private beach. Just our Tahoe and the beach. very nice!
If you are visiting Corpus Christi for your summer holidays, then definitely one of the best places to spend your day is the Padre Island National Seashore.
This place is just great for those looking for a perfect place to practice wind surfing and overall a great place for families with kids. Just try to play shell hunting with your kids, they will simply love it.
The admission fee is $10 for a week, which proves to be ideal for those on holidays. A great period is end of July, during which you will be able to witness the sea turtle release at dawn. This day the entrance is free!
