We love Padre Island Beach! See why others do too!
Coastal Living recognizes Malaquite Beach, an incredible North Padre Beach. A few things mentioned were the rarely crowded beaches, activities such as windsurfing and kayaking, the visitor center which features wildlife and local history displays, and the “60 miles of uninterrupted sand down to Mansfield Channel.”
South Padre Island and Corpus Christi are among USA Today’s favorite Texas beach vacation places. The article highlights the Spring Break fun of South Padre, but also the year-round attraction because of the beautiful climate, beach bars and restaurants, along with many convenient lodging options. USA Today points out multiple areas in and around Corpus Christi, such as the white-sand beaches of Port Aransas, fishing of Aransas Pass, birdwatching on Mustang Island, and of course the wildlife centers and birding opportunities at Padre Island National Seashore.
While many are bias to their favorite beaches along the numerous coasts of America, Thrillist names the Texas Coast as America’s BEST Coast! The article mentions not one, but multiple features of Padre Island that contribute to this declaration. First off, Thrillist awards Clayton’s Beach Bar in South Padre as “one of the best beach bars in the world” because of its size and regular top-name concerts. This leads to the next accolade given to South Padre as one of the country’s top Spring Break locations! Additionally, featured are the turtle releases that take place on North Padre. Thrillist also lists Mustang Island and Padre Island National Seashore as top beach camping spots in America.
Best Beaches points out the incredible nature, various activities, and beautiful, sandy beaches of Padre Island National Seashore as one of the best in Texas. The picture-perfect beach setting is the perfect vacation getaway!
While noting the Spring Break hotspot of South Padre, Southern Living focuses more on the uninterrupted beaches from North to South Padre and the protected coast of Padre Island National Seashore. Southern Living also emphasizes the striking Gulf water and perfect sandcastle building location.
