Corpus Christi Beaches Perfect for Surfing, Fishing

 Corpus Christi's two beaches, Corpus Christi Beach and McGee Beach, provide plenty of oceanside entertainment. The area along the Coastal Bend gets some of the best waves in Texas.

 J.P. Luby Surf Park offers the usual beach activities with the added bonus of being one of Corpus Christi's hottest surf spots as well as a prime spot for barbecues and socializing. There are many nearby equipment-rental vendors offering kayaks, boogie boards, surf boards and jet skis.

While there are plenty of secluded spots, the premier surfing spot is also the biggest party beach: Bob Hall Pier, which produces consistently perfect waves. On North Padre Island, waves are usually waist to head high.

Corpus Christi also has one of the highest average wind speeds of coastal cities in North America, making it one of the premier destinations for wind sports such as kite boarding and wind surfing.

The city also holds plenty of opportunity for fishing. Guides aren't hard to come by for either saltwater of freshwater fishing.

C&T Bay Charters provides charters that take guests out to the latest ocean hot spots, and the Bob Hall Pier is a great option for the whole family with fishing, a great beach and good food all within reach.
