A relaxing trip to one of Corpus Christi’s many beaches seems simple enough. The sun, the sand and a drink in your hand. Most trips to the beaches of Padre and Mustang Island don’t require much more than that. Here are a few things you need to do and (not do) to ensure that you make the most of your Corpus Christi beach vacation.

Corpus Christi Beach Habit #1 👙🌴🐬

Bring Fido along to play, but make sure you keep him on a leash and pick up after him so he doesn't leave an unpleasant surprise for the next beach goer. Remember, we all like to walk barefoot on the beach!

Corpus Christi Beach Habit #2👙🌴🐬

Don't get caught without a beach parking permit. Permits are required on most Corpus Christi beaches - get yours at the Corpus Christi Visitor Information Center before you hit the beach.

Corpus Christi Beach Habit #3👙🌴🐬

Enjoy a safe and legal beachfront campfire. Burn only natural wood, pallets and lumber are not allowed…nails could be a real pain the foot or tire. Pick up some campfire supplies at any one of the grocery stores on your way to the beach.

Corpus Christi Beach Habit #4 👙🌴🐬

Leave the glass containers at home. Your best bet for beach beverages? Reusable bottles, cups or tumblers. Less trash, more fun! We want to keep our beaches beautiful and clean.

Corpus Christi Beach Habit #5 👙🌴🐬

Bring your snacks in reusable grocery bags so you don't have to worry about that plastic grocery bag making a break for it into the dunes. Don’t have one? Pick up a reusable trash bag at the Corpus Christi Visitor Information Center.
