    I am a bit confused on the laws of driving to South Padre Island and driving it on the beach all the way to the cut for fishing. One site says that it is legal but other people have said no. My wife and I were born and raised in Texas and still have family there but I don’t want to trailer my Teryx 1500 miles each way to find out I can’t ride it there.

    We have been residents of NC for 10 years so it has been 11 years since we went and back then when the pavement ended anything was okay, heck they even rented dune buggies and sand rails to drive on the beach.

    Any advice or first had knowledge of the current situation, we are thinking of going back down in a April.

    Curious to find out about that too. I’ve been to crystal beach many times down on bolivar island. Miles and miles to ride but not nearly as nice as padre. I have also heard mixed things about riding down there. I got the same info some say yes others say no. I know on crystal beach all you need is a beach pass and you’re good. So I would think padre would be similar with more restricted areas though
