Called the shrimp capital of Texas, Palacios is home to a fishing, oystering, and shellfish industry. At the Marina you can sometimes catch sight of the slow, lumbering shrimp boats bringing in a catch of Texas seafood.
Any time of year the Marina is a perfect spot to enjoy the miles of public-access Palacios waterfront. Pack a picnic and sit and watch the birds across the open water. Sometimes you will even see dolphins!
