South Padre Island Beach received a 5 star rating for water quality - that's cool:

Testing The Waters: Ratings for a Selection of U. S. Popular Beaches | NRDC

Only 12 beaches out of 200 achieved a 5 star rating.

A lot of people get SPI and NPI confused. SPI is in the Valley near Brownsville. NPI is in Corpus Christi.

One thing I don't understand is, how a 100 miles down the coast, the water can be so much blue'er and clearer.

It's 100 miles further from the Mississippi, and has different prevailing currents.
Hell, 100 miles in NC gets you the difference from the Labrador current and the Gulf Stream. Water temperature can be 20 degrees different.
