Welcome to North Padre Island on the Texas Gulf Coast

The Gulf Coast’s pride and joy, the PADRE ISLAND NATIONAL SEASHORE. The park is the “longest seashore in the National Parks System” – a 70 mile patch of coastline just east of Corpus Christi with its sparkling waves, serene beaches and colorful wildlife. The 70-mile long park is just one portion of the 130-mile long Padre Island known as the longest undeveloped barrier island in the world. Did you know you can drive on our beach!
