2. North Padre Island
Starting off at the Port Aransas to the seemingly endless grasslands of Padre Island National Seashore, North Padre Island is believed to be the longest area of undeveloped barrier island beachfront in the world. This also means that tourists get to enjoy the untouched natural beauty of the area. However, it doesn’t mean that scenery is the only place you’ll enjoy here.
While on North Padre Island, you can visit the Texas State Aquarium, the Museum of Science and History or the USS Lexington Museum. Also, if you arrive here during autumn, you get to hang around with many bird species that stop here during their migration.
And if you’re a fan of water sports, the shore is perfect for surfing, windsurfing and kiteboarding.
