I cannot get enough of the public beach in South Padre Island. 70 miles of being able to drive on the beach. I have been there many times and love it every time, For the most part people are considerate and friendly. I will say though I have never been there during spring break. Might be a different story then.

The charge is $250 to get towed out. Also be careful and to not run... 更多
