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.
Relax by the water at Boca Chica State Park and Isla Blanca Park. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Paragraphs on Padre Boulevard and Sabal Palm Sanctuary. Step out of South Padre Island with an excursion to Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park in Brownsville--about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, make a trip to Largest Outdoor Sandcastle in the USA, and look for all kinds of wild species at South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center.
