Summer time means beach time! Thinking of a weekend getaway?
Check out this list of the top 3 beaches in Texas!
1. South Padre Island – Also known as SPI to the locals, this beach is at the top of our list for being the cleanest. The locals here take really good care of the beach to ensure there is no trash. South Padre Island is also a favorite among tourists looking for the wild life and those looking to observe wildlife. Some come here to scope out the rowdy bar scene while others can’t take their eyes off the silky-smooth dolphins dotting the surf and majestic sea turtles scuttling in the sand. Located just off the southern tip of Texas, this beach features crystalline waters that calm and soothe.
2. South Packery Channel Beach – Home to some of the best jetty fishing in South Texas (you could reel in kingfish, grouper, tarpon, or trout), South Packery Channel Beach is known for swimming and serenity, and for being an excellent spot for children to splash in the water or build a sandcastle on the shore.
3. Port Aransas – There’s no hustle and bustle here, no big city comings and goings — the only thing coming and going is the tide. Although Corpus Christi is nearby, you won’t notice anything but the idyllic calm and peacefulness of long, languorous beaches that invite you to linger and indulge your lazy side.
