Located on the Gulf of Mexico in South Texas, Corpus Christi boasts over 9 Beaches, and is surrounded by 5 Islands; Padre Island, South Padre Island, Mustang Island, Laguna Madre, and Brazos Island. 

The hidden gem lays quietly on the Coast, and is the 8th largest City in Texas! It is only 3 hours away from Houston, and 2 hours away from San Antonio.

Corpus Christi’s very first Occupants are said to be The Karankawa Indians, who were known to live and travel along The Gulf of Mexico.

According to history, Spanish explorer Alonzo Alvarez de Pineda, discovered a very rich, lavish, and partly Tropical Bay, on the Roman Catholic Feast Day in 1519. Thus, naming it Corpus Christi.

The name Corpus Christi means the body of Christ in Spanish. It is also currently identified as it’s County Nueces Bay, and has been nicknamed “The Sparkling City by the Sea,” by Locals and Tourist.

There are Islands within Islands here in Nueces Bay that I would like to show you! But first, North Beach!
