This the only beach that was very crowded. You need to pay $ 2,00 to go in the pier area. We've never seen so many people fishing one next to each other so we just left. Took some pictures and moved to other beaches

This is our favorite beach spot around corpus. The paved parking lot keeps cars off the beach so it's safer for kids and you don't need a beach parking permit! The facilities around are nice, lots of families, never any trouble with party crowds. We...More
