Owner description: This beach on Padre Island is a great camping and beach-going spot.
Reviewed 10 November 2017

Has shower facilities and covered deck at park facility for sitting and eating. Small store for forgotten necessities or cold drinks. Beach goes for 80 miles, but don't get caught at south end when high tide comes in as the beach narrows. Only a mile from Bird Island windsurf beach.

Well, its a beach. Nothing special but good view and nice visitor center. Worth to visit if you are in the area, don't plan to spend a lot of time there.

Get away from it all by making a relatively short drive from the city. This is one of our favorite places.

The primitive campsites at PINS Malaquite Beach are very well maintained, and there is enough variety of sites that a tent is not drowned out by RVs and boat rigs. The showers were spacious and toilets were in good condition. The shore is a close walk away, and breaker dunes provide excellent views of the inland side of the park. Go here for peace, solitude, stargazing, turtle hatching and bird watching.

We were totally alone with the waves and the birds. It was about 20 minutes from the businesses on Padre Island and there was nothing there to eat. So we brought a picnic lunch and it was perfect.
