    Ok south padre is way better than every other beach that follows it, the sand is much more white and the water is way clearer than others

    Texas has great beaches. South Padre and Rockport have clear water with nice sand. Galveston gets a bad rap because the water can get dark due to the silt run off from the Mississippi River (some 350 miles away) which is brought by currents, but it's not dirty. A lot of times, it clears up. Never the less, it's a great town and nothing beats a day at the beach with the sound of waves and the ocean breeze. Enough with "oh but these other beaches in other places are better", this is a list of Texas beaches.

    Nice beaches in Texas? Lol! That’s like saying the IRS has some nice tax loopholes for everyone. Seriously, Texas coast is pure garbage. Hell, even a sh*thole like Mississippi has nicer beaches. Florida is 100 times better.
