SIGHTSEEING AND RECREATION DURING YOUR SOUTH PADRE ISLAND VACATION
On South Padre Island, it’s easy to fill your days with sunshine drenched hours on the beach, hiking and biking through a gorgeous natural landscape, exciting times at the water park, leisurely rounds of golf (and even mini-golf), and nights spent drinking and dancing the night away.
The beaches of South Padre Island are perhaps the island’s main attraction; it’s easy to see why when you visit them for yourselves. Because of the strict ban against glassware on all beaches, South Padre Island’s beaches remain pristine and immaculate, seemingly untouched despite droves of visitors coming to enjoy their beauty. Vacation rentals in South Padre Island have it all!
For beaches closer to town, check out Dolphin Cove Beach, which is well-known for its ideal swimming, fishing, and jet skiing conditions, or Rockstar Beach. Alternatively, if you enjoy the atmosphere of a secluded, remote beach, there are 20 miles of beaches accessible through Andy Bowie County Park where you can drive until you reach your spot in the sand, peacefully removed from civilization. If you decide to go this route, we highly recommend bringing or renting a vehicle with 4-wheel drive that is powerful enough to navigate the soft sands.
You can enjoy all kinds of water sports on South Padre Island, from parasailing and windsurfing to kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. Classic banana boat rides are a fun option for visitors traveling in groups. Fishing charters, boating charters, snorkeling charters, and scuba diving charters are all popular as well.
Eco tours of the Laguna Madre through the South Padre Dolphin Research and Sea Life Center will put you face-to-face with a pod of wild dolphins that has lived in the bay for years. The center is also an excellent all-ages destination where visitors can see various marine animals up-close and learn about their habitat.
For more family-friendly fun, you and your guests can visit places like Gravity Park and Three Flags Over Padre, which offer reverse bungees, go-karting, and mini-golf, or Schlitterbahn Waterpark, which has indoor and outdoor waterslides and an immense wave pool next to the ocean. Local South Padre Island restaurants have something for everyone!
Whatever you end up doing during your time on the island, you’re sure to enjoy yourself!
