I visit this at least 2 times a week during a one month stay. 0730-0900 and 1630-1800 during the month of February offer best light for photography and the wildlife is busy doing errands :)
Very limited parking by the water treatment plant. Good signs as you are entering showing the different birds you may see. Make sure you take you binoculars. There is a boardwalk and viewing tower. Most of the people seem to be respectful and keep the noise at a low level. The birds seem to be use to the visitors and... 更多
Even though I got to Port A a lot this was my first visit. Very nice board walk and lots of water fowl. Be forewarned that there are a lot of folks who go to take pictures and will block the board walk for their activity. Over all a good place to view the back bay of South Texas beach... 更多
