Beach
“Pristine beach area for picnic's . Sea turtle watching Padre Island National Seashore offers countless opportunities to discover and enjoy the amazing recreation and resources of the park. Take a dip in the Gulf of Mexico and build a sand castle. Drive down the beach until civilization fades away and camp under a dazzling blanket of stars. Fish for red drum and black tipped shark. Watch a squadron of pelicans glide by, or watch newly hatched sea turtles crawl to the sea. Walk through vanishing coastal prairies to a historic cowboy camp. Take a boat or kayak out for an adventure in the Laguna Madre, or try your hand at windsurfing at Bird Island Basin, one of the top destinations in the U.S. for the sport. Trade in the sights and sounds of traffic and concrete for those of waves, wind, sand, and birds. Put the wireless world in silent mode for a while and find a different connection here in this special place. ”
