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.
Explore hidden gems such as Largest Outdoor Sandcastle in the USA and Laguna Madre Nature Trail. When in South Padre Island, make a side trip to see Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park in Brownsville, approximately 34 minutes away. There's lots more to do: 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, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure.

For photos, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, read South Padre Island travel planner.

In July, daily temperatures in South Padre Island can reach 88°F, while at night they dip to 78°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
