Nice place to enjoy the gulf, watch locals fish, and look back along the coast. Cost is minimal and you can return any time on the same day. There is a convenient restaurant on the beach.

Fun waterfront bar and grill. Typical bar food. Good selection of beer. Long line waiting for table. The North Padre Island beach is some of the best sand i have ever been on.

The location is great since it sits right over the Gulf Waters and you park in the sand to get here. The food is average and unfortunatly they don't use Gulf Fish for their Fish Sandwich or Fish Basket. They use very cheap ($2.44 Pd) Swai fish that comes from Vietman...yuck. Talk about greed, sell 1/2 pd of cheap fish... More

This is a good place to visit even if you don't want to fish. It's an excellent pier for fishing and very inexpensive. Military and Seniors get reduced rate

We had some time to kill, so stopped by the Bob Hall Pier at the recommendation of a local restaurateur. Unfortunately, it was extremely windy (30+ mph winds), so we didn't go out on the pier, but the employee staffing the ticket counter was very friendly and showed me pictures of some of the fish that had been caught on...

On a 72 degree January day we visited this pier for the first time. It is in good condition. Lots of people were there strolling up and down in the sunshine in the middle of the week. There is a great grill and bar. It is easy to reach and not expensive to enjoy.

In my opinion this is the best and cleanest beach in Corpus Christi. The sand is well groomed and packed, the water is pretty clear, and there isn't a lot of sea weed washing up like some of the others. We loved it.
