Here is a round-up of some of the best selfie spots in Corpus Christi:
1. Island Joe's Coffee and Gallery
Made out of colorful shipping containers, Island Joe's isn't your average coffee shop! Before hitting the beach, make sure you order a Coconut Fro Joe and enjoy the funky interior and original artwork. The owner is a photographer himself, so he means business when it comes to creating a picture-perfect spot. 14829 S. Padre Island Dr.
2. Marker 37 at Sunset Island
Marker 37, also known as Sunset Island, is a coastal playground. Enjoy a walk along the boardwalk while spotting boaters, paddlers, birds, and iconic sunsets! And after capturing the perfect pic, don't forget to enjoy a fresh seafood platter at Snoopy's and ice cream at Scoopy's! 13317 S. Padre Island Dr.
3. Peoples St. T-Head
After paying respects to Selena at Mirador de la Flor, make your way down the Peoples T-Head for prime viewing of the downtown skyline, sailboats, pelicans, and the Corpus Christi Bay! Home to the Corpus Christi Marina, this T-Head is a quaint escape from the hustle and bustle on the seawall -- and be sure to stop by Harrison's Landing, a restaurant that floats! 108 Peoples St. T-Head
4. Padre Island National Seashore
Have you been to the beach oasis right in our backyard? The national seashore is a true nature gem that's home to dunes, grasslands, and a variety of animals. Just steps away from Malaquite Beach is an observation deck with scenic views at Padre Island's Visitor Center. Be sure to snap a beautiful beach selfie on your adventure! 20420 Park Rd. 22
5. Miradores del Mar
A symbol of our city, these beloved miradors along the downtown seawall are the perfect backdrop for a casual selfie or stunning wedding photo. These gazebo structures overlooking the bay are said to reflect similar structures in Spain and Morocco, so don't miss out on a picture with these unique lookouts! 1590 N. Shoreline Blvd.
6. Cole Park Pier
In the heart of Corpus Christi is Cole Park, a fun-filled place overlooking the Corpus Christi skyline and Corpus Christi Bay. Make this place your playground (no matter your age!) and enjoy a giant playscape, skate park, brand new fishing pier, and trail after snapping a pic with the colorful mural or scenic pier here! 1900 Ocean Dr.
7. North Beach Beachwalk
Downtown and beach views, WWII-era planes, and the Blue Ghost herself?? This is a recipe for a classic photo commemorating your trip to Corpus Christi! The entrance of the USS Lexington Museum on the Bay is a popular spot for snapping selfies -- coast on over and see it for yourself. 2914 N. Shoreline Blvd.
8. Whataburger by the Bay
Did you know Corpus Christi is home to the only 2-story Whataburger in the world? Grab yourself a #1, enjoy the waterfront views on the second floor's patio, and snap a pic at this unique Whataburger location for bragging rights! 121 N. Shoreline Blvd.
