Padre Island National Seashore should be fine for families with kids during spring break. The drunk college students will be in Port Aransas and the state and county beaches. Malaquite beach at PINS will have lots of families but no driving on the beach.

Thanks! We're pretty locked in to Corpus at this point next week so we will make it work and prepare for conversations with our boys.��

Checked out the beach at Padre Island National Seashore yesterday. Nice natural beach and only a few other people here and there. Kids enjoyed beach combing and making sand castles. Saw quite a few Portuguese Man O War along the beach as well as many clear smaller jellyfish. Had fun wading with the kids but didn't go out too far as the waves were pretty strong. Went to Doc's for dinner afterward and really enjoyed that.

So glad you're having a good time! Do keep a tight hold on the kids and keep them close in. The undertow can be very dangerous.

If you don't mind driving a little further, I strongly recommend South Padre Island. It's the best one in Texas!

Glad you are having fun. Generally the bay beaches North, Mcgee, and Emerald are best for kid swimming since they don't have rip tides and have fewer man o wars than the Gulf beaches. Avoiding college kids on the island is either the National Seashore or the state park. Port Aransas and the City and County Beaches are where the young folks will be.

North Beach is a great Spring Break choice. No rowdy teenagers and college students as they're all out on the Gulf beaches. North Beach is a 1.5-mile-long beach and is home to Corpus Christi's two main attractions: the Texas State Aquarium (great for kids) and the USS Lexington Museum. There's a sidewalk that runs all along the beach called the "Corpus Christi Beachwalk" and lots of hotels, cottages and condos to rent.
Just across the Harbor Bridge is the Science and History Museum, recently updated with a new kids educational area.
I love living on North Beach and would not ever go out to the Gulf during Spring Break. The beach here on North Beach has greatly improved over the past few years, as the city has begun to maintain it and clean it on a daily basis. We get mainly families with young kids because there are virtually no currents, no undertow and no riptides. We do get jellyfish on occasion but that's about the only threat and that is just seasonal. They come in for a week and then disappear for two or three, then come back. Hard to predict if we'll have them or not.
Hurricane Alley waterpark is also just across the bridge from North Beach, right next to Whataburger Field (baseball).
