This is a 1200 foot pier. It is well kept and sturdy. What an awesome location to allow visitors fish in deep water without a boat. You can bring your own pole and bait or rent them. There is a $2.00 charge per person going out on the pier and $2.00 charge per pole if you bring your own pole.... More

The weather was beautiful. We came to Corpus for our honeymoon and stopped by the beach and pier to enjoy the sunshine. Theresa few dollar fee to go on pier but you can park for free and enjoy the beach near it. Also a great food place in the pier for lunch!

Free open beach with plenty of parking and space for one to have some beach time. They do have restroom facilities. Overall the beach is pretty clean.

The mixed drinks could have been a little bit better and a little bigger for the price. They even had a great... More

I was a little put off by the charge to get in (as a non fisher) & then additional fees for each fishing pole (limit 4), but after what I've seen people catch, it might be worth it. In the middle of the pier, there were several fishing that seemed to catch something decent when we walked by. One caught... More
