North Padre Island Seawall

Occasionally confused with the seawall in downtown Corpus Christi the seawall on North Padre Island is quite different. Designed for protection against storm swells for the hotel resorts and condominiums it guards "the wall" is perfect for walking, bicycling, skating and more right along the Gulf of Mexico. Several hotel resorts and condos at the seawall offer access to the beach in front of the wall as well as gulf views.

Padre Island Seawall

The seawall is about 1 mile in length. It is positioned between White Cap Beach and the South Packery Channel Beach. This is a frequent visit for locals and visitors looking to stroll along the beach's edge without getting sand on their feet. Beach rentals such as umbrellas and chairs are available along the beach here. This Nueces beach requires a beach parking permit. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months. Vehicle traffic is allowed on the beach in front of the seawall. It is required to move one-way, southerly. Traffic is usually fairly light here.

Visiting or staying on or by the seawall provides easy access to several restaurants and sports bars.
