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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Dolphin & Whale Watching and Horseback Riding Tours. Change things up with these side-trips from South Padre Island: Brownsville (Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park & Gladys Porter Zoo). There's much more to do: 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, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.

For maps, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read our South Padre Island day trip planning website .

In August, daily temperatures in South Padre Island can reach 89°F, while at night they dip to 79°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
