  • What a fun little bookstore! Wife, daughter, and I were vacationing on the island when we noticed Paragraphs down the street from where we were staying. We like to read so browsing bookstores is always a pleasure. So we stopped by for a look-see. If we lived on the island this would be one of the places we'd frequent. It just has good energy. Comfy sitting areas with games to play, free coffee, gregarious owners always willing to help with a smile, and, of course, books! We'll definitely be back next time when on the island.
  • I took a weekend vacation to SPI recently. I love to read and saw that Paragraphs was near the condo I stayed at. A friend and I stopped by and I fell in love! Friendly owners, cozy atmosphere, the smell of books both old and new! I wish I could've stayed there and just read all afternoon. I regret not stopping by on my way out back to Austin. If you're in the area, stop by and give this small business some love. I can't wait to stop by again :)
  • Last year, my boyfriend and I visited this bookstore on the island. Today, we went again this year and had an experience that was just as wonderful. The store is so organized, with several chairs to sit down and read in (or just take a break). It's also dog friendly, so my fuzzy friend got to join us too. I always look forward to coming to SPI because I get to visit Paragraphs and get a good book to curl up with on the beach. And even when the island gets a little too busy, I can always come stop by and catch a breath here.
  • One of my favorite bookstores in Texas. Choice, smart selection that balances critically lauded books with those of local interest, along with a small selection of used and Spanish language books. A store with character and great charm. Also: free (and good) coffee!
  • Personal service from the owners. Meet local authors. Sit and read with a good cup of joe in your hand. Play checkers or go read in the courtyard. Something for everyone in the family.

Where to stay in South Padre Island

As with most tropical destinations, room rates in South Padre Island increase the closer you get to the beachfront, especially if you arrive at the height of tourist season. If you’ve built in a big budget for accommodations, stay at one of the town's high-rise luxury hotels or private seaside cottages. To stay near the water without spending too much, avoid the expensive spring break season. Consider one of the island's inns or developed campgrounds with easy beach access.
