Scenic Route: Gulf Coast

From Park Road 22 at Padre Island National Seashore, take Bird Island Basin Road to the Laguna Madre side of the island, where this directional sign stands outside Worldwinds Windsurfing. The sign notes the hometowns of people who have come to windsurf at this location, considered one of the best sites in the continental U.S. Expect park entrance and basin day-use fees.
