We went to a turtle release at that beach and afterwards we played on the beach. It was very clean! There were clams every where. It was very pretty

Drove down to the beach from Corpus Christi. The facilities were nice. Did not stay very long as it was just a sight seeing trip to see what the "fuss" was a bout.

Little bit further out but totally worth the drive. Showers were really nice for after a day at the beach.

A lovely quiet stretch of beach not very used by the tourists. It is a bit of a drive to arrive there but well worth it. There is a small store with information and souvenirs, a change room with showers, and Park Rangers who are...More

Certainly...really nice natural beach with facilities. The visitor center is small but very interesting! I would think most spring breakers would avoid this beach because it is not free and they patrol it constantly!
