Are the Beaches in Corpus Christi Open?

Updated May 20, 2020

Corpus Christi beaches are open!​

We know you’re ready for a trip to the beach in Corpus Christi, if we were you, we would be too. When you make the decision that traveling is right for you, we want you to have the most fun possible… responsibly. Follow these simple guidelines and we can ride this wave together.  

In conjunction with Governor Abbott’s plan for Phase 2 of re-opening Texas and for the health, safety and enjoyment of our residents and visitors, we really want you to abide by the following rules and recommendations when visiting the beaches.

 Rules: 

  1. Maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet between humans. Not sure how far 6 feet is? Here’s an example:

    Aquarium Social Distancing
  1. As always you can still park on the beach (with a beach parking permit) but keep a minimum of 100 feet between vehicles not in your party.  

  1. No gathering in groups of more than 10 people  

Recommendations: 

  1. We know you want to spend a whole day on the coast,  but extensive picnicking, partying or gathering should be minimized for the next two weeks. So only take your favorite friends or family members.  

  2. Masks are recommended, but not required. Check out some cool, Corpus Christi options here:
