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.
Take a break from the city and head to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Isla Blanca Park. Go for a jaunt from South Padre Island to Brownsville to see Boca Chica State Park about 56 minutes away. The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Sea Turtle, Inc., take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.
