Laguna Madre

South Padre Island, Texas

Among the most unique natural wonders in North America, Laguna Madre is one of only 6 hypersaline (saltier than the ocean) lagoons in the world. This remarkable ecosystem supports a myriad of wildlife as well as more finfish than anywhere else on the Texas coast. The plentiful bounty attracts scores of migratory birds as well as tourists who can explore this captivating marshland along its more than 1,500 feet of boardwalk.
