$10 fee. Parking lot and short walk through dunes to the beach. Big beach. Clean. Water much prettier than Corpus Christi and Galveston. Not many beach goers this time of year. Older people and some dog walkers.

Get away from some of the crowd by heading to Andy Bowie Park - our Cameron County pass ($12.50/month for veterans or $25/month otherwise). Restrooms and nice uncrowded beaches were great!

The beach and park area were very clean. Loved doing my yoga at sunset. Would return here if I have the opportunity.
