Outdoor Spaces in North Beach
North Beach is home to Corpus Christi favorites like the USS Lexington Museum on the Bay and the Texas State Aquarium, but did you know North Beach also has some amazing outdoor spaces? If you’re looking to have fun in the sun, head to these spots!
Dolphin Park’s children’s playground is located on the north end of the beach. It’s a great place to take the family or the kiddos to run around or to watch water sports -- there’s even shallow water for swimming. You also may be able to see the sidewalk painting exhibition that was recently created!
Known to locals as Corpus Christi’s best-kept secret, the Beachwalk is a paved path along the sandy beach. It’s perfect for bikes, baby strollers and rollerblades. The walk starts at the Texas State Aquarium, ends at Dolphin Park and is accessible from Beach Ave. Visit mid-day on a weekend to experience the liveliness of North Beach, or visit at night thanks to the lamp posts that line the walkway.
Jetty behind Pier 99
The Jetty behind Pier 99 was constructed in the mid-1980s to hold sand in place. Today, it is one of two prominent fishing jetties in Corpus Christi (one south, one north). The Jetty is a great spot to take in the outdoors -- you can even see the Harbor Bridge from the North Beach Jetty!
Sometimes we can overthink and forget about life’s simple pleasures -- like the beach! The 1.5-mile long sandy beach is the perfect place to catch some rays and enjoy the great outdoors. Head to the Fajitaville Ferris Wheel to see the beautiful Corpus Christi skyline at sunset!
If you’re looking for some fresh air and a good time, look no farther than North Beach during your stay in Corpus Christi!
