South Padre Island

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Laguna Madre Nature Trail and Sea Turtle, Inc.. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sabal Palm Sanctuary and Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge. Step out of South Padre Island with an excursion to Palo Alto Battlefield National Historic Site in Brownsville--about 34 minutes away. There's much more to do: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, immerse yourself in nature at Isla Blanca Park, look for all kinds of wild species at South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center, and take in the waterfront at Queen Isabella State Fishing Pier.

To find more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the South Padre Island trip planning app .

In May, daily temperatures in South Padre Island can reach 81°F, while at night they dip to 71°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
