South Padre Island

A vibrant resort town, South Padre Island sits on a barrier island of the same name, located just off the Texas Gulf Coast.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Iwo Jima Memorial & Museum and Quinta Mazatlan. Get out of town with these interesting South Padre Island side-trips: Basilica of Our Lady of San Juan Del Valle (in San Juan), Weslaco (Frontera Audubon & Estero Llano Grande State Park) and Brownsville (Sabal Palm Sanctuary, Children’s Museum of Brownsville, & more). Next up on the itinerary: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, meet the residents at South Padre Island Dolphin Research & Sea Life Nature Center, trot along with a tour on horseback, and fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

To find ratings, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the South Padre Island tour itinerary planner.

August in South Padre Island sees daily highs of 89°F and lows of 79°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
