The Perfect Getaway to Lively Beach in Corpus Christi

April 7, 2021
We wanted a getaway to a beach not too long of a drive from Austin and Corpus Christi sounded like the perfect escape from the montony! Lively Beach, a resort condominium property on Mustang Island looked like a dreamy spot for some privacy, pool time, beach days as well as immaculate accommodations with everything you need to stay comfortably.
Lively Beach hosted us for the weekend but note, I would hands down pay to stay there anytime and will absolutely do so this summer!

The Property

Entering the driveway to Lively Beach, I suddenly felt as though I was transported to Tulum! The expansive property lined with palm trees definitely will put you in the beach mood right away! I love the color-scheme of the buildings and the property in general. The vibes are aesthetically pleasing and peaceful and likely will have you feeling like you’re somewhere in Mexico (Tulum for us). Pro Tip: Be sure to visit the rooftop decks – they have fabulous 360 views and lots of lounging areas for your couple or family needs!

I just love the building design so much!

They have a really lovely general grassy area where they have cornhole for some fun and stiff competition! Also, they have two separate grilling stations with a fish cleaning setup for your fresh catches. Plenty of tables of all kinds for your family outdoor dining needs too.

Escaping from Austin and want a nearby destination that still feels like you’re elsewhere? We really enjoyed our stay at Camp Lucy and I know you will too!

The Boardwalk

A total eye-catching structure on the property is the Boardwalk! The entrance from the lounge area is so grand and the boardwalk is long and meanders through the dunes to the private beach! It’s secluded and has absolutely stunning views of the beach, water, sunrise and sunset. We walked the boardwalk the first night we got there at sunset and just look at this views below!

I absolutely loved walking down the boardwalk – and those breathtaking views!

I feel like someone needs to get married right here!


The Resort-style pool is HUGE and gorgeous with plenty of lounge chairs and work-from-pool seating with lots of power outlets to stay charged! The pool is heated as well which came in handy for us since it was still a bit cool when we visited.

We stayed in the Studio, 1 bath, which was more than enough space for the 2 of us. We appreciated the full size refrigerator/freezer and the fully stocked kitchen. The king bed was extra comfy and I want the bedding linens! They have 1 bedroom with 2 baths and some with decks as well. Need more space? Check out their 2 bedroom 3 baths with deck rooms! Perfect for a family!

I cannot say enough about Lively Beach! Several of our friends have already booked their stays and we’re trying to coordinate our next one as well. Let me know if you book and maybe we can coordinate and meet up there!

Bon Voyage,
