Corpus Christi’s beautiful beaches are the heart and soul of the Texas Gulf Region. The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department cares for two bayfront beaches and designated stretches of beaches along our Gulf Coast.

Corpus Christi’s beaches are its most vibrant resource that you’ll want to explore for yourself!

The Bayfront beaches (North Beach and McGee Beach) are nationally recognized as among the best restored beaches in the country by ASBPA in 2010 and 2012.

McGee Beach - Located downtown on Shoreline Blvd. along the seawall on Corpus Christi Bay, it is walking distance from McCaughan Park, hotels, restaurants, a marina, museums of art, history and science, as well as near entertainment and sports venues, including the convention center. Learn more about McGee Beach.

North Beach – Located just a short drive over the Harbor Bridge where you can enjoy a relaxed beach vibe—stroll the Beachwalk promenade, lounge under a cabana, enjoy local seafood, board an historic aircraft carrier and explore the award-winning Texas State Aquarium. Learn more about North Beach.

Our Gulf of Mexico beaches on Mustang Island and North Padre Island offer endless recreational opportunities for visitors and locals. Swim in the warm waters, build a stunning sandcastle or simply relax with your toes in the sun-kissed sand and breath in the salty fresh air—ah!
