This body of "hypersaline" water is trapped between the gulf and land and ends up saltier than ocean water due to evaporation. Its good for fishing and boating on a calmer surface than the open gulf but some of the coastal areas on the island side can be bug infested during summer months; brings lots of bug spray!

Nothing better, by yourself, with friends, or with a party. This is it! I especially like the early mornings or the afternoons. No sunburn, wonderful breezes and the beauty of the water. Enjoy!

First time here for us. The food was good. I thought the view was beautiful. It is not a place that ou need to dress up for, pretty relaxed atmosphere. Would return again.

If you love water, you will love the Laguna Madre. No matter the time of the day or the condition of the weather, there are people fishing and recreating on the water. Love this area.

Laguna Madre is a beautiful area where you can fish or just sit back sip and ice cold coffee and enjoy the water and local birds.

Ok all you out of town people do not think about fishing the Laguna Madre or traveling it if you have never been in this area. The best way to fish this area is hire a guide for the first couple times. Ask plenty of questions when the guide takes you out and make sure to watch where and how... More

We rented a condo right on the Laguna Madre. Fishing is excellent, beautiful calm waters. Very nice view to wake up to 2 resident pelicans right out front, very entertaining! Saw a couple of Rosetta Spoonbills on the flats right across from our Condo when we kayaked over. Lots of residents fishing there.

There is a restaurant named Doc's that is pretty and has live music. Service was crazy slow and we waited well over an hour after ordering. Very breezy so bring a light sweater. waiter was super nice. Food was good. Spicier than described on menu.
