Are the Beaches in Corpus Christi Open?
Updated March 26, 2020
Corpus Christi beaches are open!
In the coming weeks, as social distancing becomes more important, Visit Corpus Christi is grateful for the miles of beaches in our own back yard. Fresh air and gulf breezes remind us of the good and keep us calm. Many have asked if our beaches are open and the answer is YES!
Nueces County has entered into a stay-at-home, but there is not currently a travel ban or a shelter in place order. Exercise and fresh air are still allowed. All Corpus Christi beaches will close at 8:00 p.m.
Remember: social distancing is still important though. Texas Governor Abbott has issued an Executive Order restricting the gathering of more than ten people at a time. Give your beach neighbor some space!
All the City of Corpus Christi and Nueces County Gulf Beaches are open. Corpus Christi Parks Department staff are taking precautions for sanitizing the beach restrooms and facilities used by the public.
All beaches along the Gulf of Mexico are still open.
Mustang Island State Park - Closed
The beaches and campgrounds of Mustang Island State Park are currently closed until further notice.
The beaches and campgrounds of the Padre Island National Seashore are open. The Malaquite Visitor Center at the Padre Island National Seashore has closed.
We understand the importance of practicing social distancing, and during these uncertain times, we're here to provide as much up-to-date information. We truly appreciate the trust that you have placed in us when you choose to visit Corpus Christi.
