Trail Information


An attraction for Corpus Christi locals, the beaches along the southern portion of Mustang Island provide a convenient day getaway for residents and overflow accessibility from Mustang Island State Park when the park is at capacity. This short but well maintained stretch of navigable beach offers travelers a less crowed experience compared to the primary Mustang Island Beaches but the safety of proximity to civilization compared to Padre Island National Seashore.

Short but fun beach at Mustang Island State Park. Worth adding to itinerary if driving down the coast.

We ended up spending a bit more time on this beach since we weren't able to enter the state park since it was full. We noticed many others being turned away from the state park doing the same. We drove to where the bollards prevented us from moving further into the state park and enjoyed the beach for a while. On the way out, we had to check out the jetties on the southern end.
