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 get in some beach time at Isla Blanca Park and Boca Chica State Park. Escape the urban bustle at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Horseback Riding Tours. Step out of South Padre Island to go to Brownsville and see Gladys Porter Zoo, which is approximately 44 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Sea Turtle, Inc., admire nature's wide array of creatures at South Padre Island Dolphin Research & Sea Life Nature Center, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure.

For more things to do, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, use the South Padre Island day trip planning website .

In May, daily temperatures in South Padre Island can reach 81°F, while at night they dip to 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
