South Padre Island Vacations

Don’t believe the hype: South Padre Island isn’t just for spring breakers. The Texas destination is a welcoming place for all types of travellers, especially those who crave some time on the water. Your South Padre vacation itinerary will fill up quickly, what with the abundance of kitesurfing, windsurfing, and diving opportunities available. When you factor in the local waterpark and restaurants, you may want to extend your vacation at least one more day.

Explore the Waters of South Texas

Texas probably isn’t the first destination that comes to mind when you imagine a beach getaway. But your South Padre Island vacation will leave you feeling like you just visited the West Coast. After you’re done playing off shore, check out some of the top attractions on dry land. Sea Turtle, Inc. is a must-visit; during the summer months, turtles cared for at the facility are released back into their natural habitat. Other popular attractions include the South Padre Island Dolphin Research and Sea Life Nature Center, and the Schlitterbahn Waterpark. If you don’t want to navigate the city on foot, just grab a South Padre Island car rental to get around.
