Top Ways to Enjoy the Beach in the Winter

We all love the beach in the summer, but in Corpus Christi, a winter beach can be just as enjoyable if you do it right. This season, enjoy a cool swim in waters that rarely dip below 68 degrees, take a scenic walk or drive along the shoreline, and go birdwatching in the "Birdiest City in America." Don't miss a beach picnic, perhaps with the help of a full-service picnic company like Pretty Picnics. As the sun sets, cozy up around a campfire with S’mores and hot cocoa. Embrace the unique charm of a Corpus Christi winter beach and make unforgettable memories this season.
