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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Laguna Madre Nature Trail and Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park. Step out of the city life by going to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Fishing Charters & Tours. When in South Padre Island, make a side trip to see Sabal Palm Sanctuary in Brownsville, approximately Brownsville away. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Sea Turtle, Inc., make a trip to Largest Outdoor Sandcastle in the USA, observe the fascinating underwater world at South Padre Island Dolphin Research & Sea Life Nature Center, and trot along with a tour on horseback.

To see reviews and tourist information, read our South Padre Island trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 89°F in August, and nighttime lows around 79°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
