  • Nice lighthouse you can climb up and get a great view. Fairly small so may need to wait to enter. Nice opportunity if you’ve never been in one.  more »
  • Beautiful lighthouse on the road just right before the bridge to go into South Padre Island. Don't forget to visit the seafood restaurant right at the lighthouse. Foods are very good.  more »

  • This lighthouse is neat and allows for a cool experience, but only if you are not claustrophobic, nor afraid of heights. There is a small, detached museum on the grounds as well. A fee is required for entry and it's cash only. The stairway up to the top is not very wide, so care must be taken when going up or down. Also, the actual top of the lighthouse is also small. This wouldn't be a problem, except for the fact that the day we went, the attendant that was collecting entry fees, let too many people up the stairs, therefore creating a claustrophobic environment on the stairs and the top of the lighthouse. If you can, try to visit this lighthouse when it is not busy, which I believe is early morning.
  • I’ve been going to Padre forever and finally had a chance to go to the lighthouse. It was really cool as it is an old lighthouse the staircase is narrow but I liked that it hasn’t been changed! Once you make it to the top...it’s beautiful and breath taking!
