Relax on the Beach
It goes without saying that South Padre Island has some of the finest beaches in the entire Gulf of Mexico. Thousands of visitors travel to South Padre Island to see these beautiful beaches in person. While most places in the country will have temperatures dropping rapidly during the fall, South Padre Island is the exception.

The water will be absolutely refreshing for a dip after soaking up the sunshine. South Padre Island beaches are always pristine and completely safe. You will also find plenty of other beachside activities to enjoy too. This includes having professional sandcastle builders help you make your own work of art.

Most of our vacation rentals will have beach gear for you to use such as umbrellas and beach chairs. Now that is a great time at the beach!
One of the most popular fall activities in South Padre Island at any time of the year is fishing. Since you are just off the coast you can enjoy a variety of fishing expeditions such as deep-sea fishing. South Padre Island has some of the best offshore and bay (nearshore) fishing you will ever find. Some of the local favorites that you can catch include redfish, snook, speckled trout, snappers, and tarpon. Head out for deeper sea fishing to get a chance at reeling up a tuna or shark. Many of these fish make for the perfect meal after a quick session on a BBQ grill. If you feel up for the challenge look no further than many of the local charters in the area. Anglers report that some of their favorite charters to book include Captain Hector Lopez Fishing and Red Vision Fishing Charters. Each charter will take you out on the water in their boat and teach you the ropes. You will be taken to places where fish are more likely to bite. They can even take care of your fishing license needs so all you need to worry about is showing up. The fall season is a great time for fishing!
