Boca Chica Beach

Boca Chica Beach runs from the Brazos Santiago Pass to the small mouth (Boca Chica) of the Rio Grande, approximately 7 to 8 miles long. Now that it is part of the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge it will hopefully always be free of commercial development. I can't think of another major river which spans more than half a continent and has such a small opening into the ocean. Just a few years ago the entrance actually silted over because the flow was reduced and you could walk across the opening to Mexico.
