No real beach to speak of, but there is a large grassy rigging and launching area with a shade gazebo and a fresh water shower. Uphill is a rest area, stay away from there.

Trip from town:+ add
I-37 South from San Antonio to 181 towards Portland, right at downtown Corpus Christi. Over Harbor Bridge and continue. Exit Moore Ave. Turn right and follow Center Yellow stripe in road to the left and continue to the stop sign at Wildcat. Turn right and the road will end at Wildcat Park. Park and walk for about 20m to the rigging area.
To enter the water walk to the left side and then further along the shore to not step into mussels and do go upwind easier. Beginners should walk away from shore and launch from there.
Weather:South Texas, meaning hot in the summer and cool in the winter.

On the water
Water details:Very shallow on the inside. Sometimes as low as inches for about 100-300 meters from shore. Outside it's choppy with rolling swells farther out. Sandy bottom, only in front of the access concrete rocks and sharp mussels.
