Looking for somewhere to take your pickup? Check out one of the many beaches located in Texas. Some of the best Texas beaches include the Kenedy Ranch Shoreline on Baffin Bay, Laguna Salada, and South Beach. With a rugged truck you can easily maneuver onto the sandy shore, pull out the tailgate, and have an unforgettable day in the sun.
According to Texas Monthly, the Kenedy Ranch Shoreline is in Baffin Bay. The bay covers more than 100 square miles, with tons of wildlife and aquatic plants. The clam water is great for fishing or boating and you can also admire the massive windmills across the shoreline. Plus, birdwatchers will enjoy the range of species in the area.
There are also some great beaches off Laguna Salada, including the end of Kleberg Country Road 1120. This serene beach and water area is popular among kayakers and extends several miles along the coast. Blue heron and white ibis are popular in the area, as well as off-pier fishing.
Finally, South Beach at the Padre Island National Seashore is unforgettable. Located between the Gulf and the Laguna Madre, Padre Island is a massive barrier island. You can camp on the South Beach, where you can also spy sea turtles along the coast. With heavy winds, this beach is very popular among windsurfers. You may have to do some hiking or boating to get around, but your truck will come in handy for hauling supplies.
Whichever beach you choose to visit, don’t forget to stop by Aransas Autoplex first to make sure your pickup is top condition!
