Michael J. Ellis Beach & Seawall
Situated just about mid-point along the one-mile Padre Island Seawall, this public beach access park offers free parking with clean bathrooms, showers and changing rooms. The beach is well-maintained and large, with packed sand, lifeguards stationed along the way and plenty of room to spread out, even on popular weekends. The seawall, 14 feet above sea level at its highest point, is close to an array of accommodations and seasonal vendors and is closed to car traffic. That makes it a great place for a bike ride, a jog, a leisurely stroll, some terrific people/surf/bird watching and an optimal zone for the kids to let out some of that energy on a safe stretch of shoreline sidewalk – free and open to the public.
