Caribe Beach

Caribe Beach, also known as Embassy Beach, is located near Boca Chica. The quiet inlet is flanked by resort properties that keep the beach relatively busy with tourists. When the wind picks up and the waves start crashing on the shore, local surfers come out of the wood works to put on a show.

You should think about stopping by regardless of whether you're staying particularly close by. You will typically find plenty of beach space once you hit the sand, since the beach and its surrounding region is not overflowing with tourists.
