Watching the sunrise in Corpus Christi is a wonderful start to your day. Bay and gulf waters to the east create the PERFECT moment for the first glitter of morning light over the water. Enjoy the start of a new day at any one of these locations...
Bob Hall Pier
The sun, the sky and the pier are all you need for a picture-perfect sunrise. Pack yourself a breakfast picnic and enjoy the morning glory near Bob Hall Pier... You are sure to find a spot at one of the picnic table cabanas on the beach. Enjoy the sights of the sunrise and the sounds of the waves at this local favorite spot.
Oleander Point at Cole Park
Calm and serene are two of the best words to describe this sunrise location. Take a seat on the bench next to the Wind Dancer statue while enjoying the bay breeze. At Oleander Point, you'll find even the morning exercisers are calm and quiet as they move past. The slow and easy sun rising over the Corpus Christi Bay creates a coastal vibe that is wonderful for vacation memories.
Padre Island National Seashore
Find nature at it's best at Padre Island National Seashore, or PINS, as the locals call it! This pristine beach, located on the longest stretch of undeveloped barrier island in the world, has some of the best sunrise sparkles that you certainly cannot find everywhere!
Head to McGee Beach on the Corpus Christi downtown seawall for a quiet sunrise over Corpus Christi Bay. Even in the middle of downtown, this beach is rarely populated in the early morning hours. Grab a to-go cup of Joe and sit on the beach to watch the sun rise over the waves coming in to the shoreline.
If you’re worried about hitting the snooze button too many times, book a room with a view so you are sure to catch the sunrise as soon as you hop out of bed! See you in Corpus Christi!
