Holiday in South Padre Island

Orientation

A Classic American Vacation Destination

Famous for its Spring Break celebrations, South Padre Island is a magnet for sun-seekers on the Texas coast. A long barrier island which stretches for miles along the Gulf Coast, Padre Island is fringed with sandy coast and enjoys months of solid sunshine every year.

Getting to Know South Padre Island

As the name suggests, the actual resort of South Padre Island is located right at the southern tip of the island, which is mainly protected as a State Park. The vacation rental properties in town are strung out along the shore and sea coast of the island, and none will be more than a few hundred meters from the sea.

Getting to South Padre Island

The closest major airport is Brownsville/South Padre Island International Airport. After you touch down in Brownsville, just drive or take a shuttle across the Queen Isabella Causeway to reach the resort.

Activities in South Padre Island

An Incredible Beach Destination

South Padre Island has become a famous beach resort in recent years thanks to its endless beaches and fine weather. There aren't many better places on the Texan Gulf Coast to sunbathe, swim or enjoy water sports.

A Great Party Destination

While Spring Break is easily the busiest couple of weeks every year, South Padre Island has great nightlife almost all year round. Bars like Clayton's or Coral Reef Lounge are always great places to unwind by the Gulf.

An Excellent Fishing Destination

If ocean fishing is your scene, South Padre Island is a fine place to head. Explore the Laguna Madre with a charter captain, or head into the open water to catch some monsters to show off on dry land.

Padre Island is the world's longest barrier island, stretching for almost 200 kilometers along the Texas coastline.

Top 5 Things to Do in South Padre Island

2. Hit the Beach at Isla Blanca

While all of South Padre Island boasts fine beaches, Isla Blanca is probably the best of all. Presided over by the “Christ of the Fishermen” statue, it's a great place to swim, snorkel or hire a jet ski.

3. Visit Historic Port Isabel

South Padre's “Old Town”, Port Isabel is full of attractions, including its lighthouse and the Historical Museum, which has plenty of artifacts from the Mexican War.

4. Take Your Family to Schlitterbahn

Definitely the premier family attraction in town, Schlitterbahn is packed with chutes, has an exciting surfing pool, along with sandcastle making areas and a hot-tub bar – the ideal place to relax while the kids let off steam.

Tracing the coast of the Laguna Madre on the coastal side of the island, this trail is a nature lovers dream, particular bird fans as the island hosts around 300 separate species.
