South Padre Island, Texas is a coastal town that offers dozens of miles of beaches, Gulf Boulevard shopping, and a welcome respite from the urban areas that are often too busy and overcrowded. Instead of renting an overpriced house in downtown Dallas, head to South Padre Island to enjoy the lower prices, proximity to green spaces, and luxurious houses.
The best part about your stay in this incredible Texan coastal town is that Franke Rentals offers a wide variety of modern and spacious condos that can suit your unique needs. We have endless accommodation options featuring modern appliances, comfortable common areas, plush bedrooms, and much more. Let’s check out some of the best things to do in your free time during your stay at one of our 2023 South Padre Island condos for rent.
One of the top activities to do for people of all ages during your time in South Padre Island is to head to a beach. Check out Harbor Beach, a public beach along Gulf Boulevard that is easy to get to from the downtown shopping street. Head to the paved parking lot on foot or by bicycle near Rocoto Grill — stop in here after a full day at the beach to enjoy a nice Italian dinner or a hearty sandwich.
Another cool beach to check out during your stay in South Padre Island is Thrive Beach, a picturesque beach located on the northern end of the town. All you have to do is walk along Padre Boulevard Road and cross the dunes to set up your umbrella, put down a chair, and tackle the waves! What makes this beach one of the best in the entire town is that you can enjoy fewer people, large open spaces, and tons of swimming areas.
If you are here for a long time, you can also check out Treasure Island Circle. This beach is accessible via a walkway, so we highly recommend coming here if you have young kids or you want to go for a nice long walk on the white sand early in the morning before the hot sun comes out. Head to one of the surrounding coffee shops or cafes after a few hours to get a filling lunch.
Last but not least, the Gulf Circle Beach is a crowd favorite. We love coming here due to its close proximity to the downtown area, multiple access points, paved parking, paved sidewalk, and beach showers so you can rinse off your sandy feet after a long day of building sandcastles, surfing in the bright blue water, and swimming with your kids.
Another fun outdoor thing to do during your time in South Padre Island is to check out the local wildlife and try your luck at bird watching. Head to the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge to explore this expansive natural area, filled with mammals, birds, amphibians, and other must-see natural phenomena. Featuring over 40,000 hectares, this beautiful preserve is the ideal place to head to with your ids during an afternoon out of the house.
If you just can’t get enough of the nearby nature, the next spot on your list should be the South Padre Island Birding and Alligator Sanctuary. Head here so your children can feed animals, view birds through their binoculars, and take a tour from an educated staff member who can teach you about the protected wetlands, alligators, reptiles, and birds.
One fun thing to do during an afternoon out of the house is to check out the Port Isabel Lighthouse. Check out this incredible structure along the coastline and view the passing-by boats. You can also learn about the history of this lighthouse, which has been around since the mid-19th century to help seafarers find their way.
Okay, this place isn’t just for kids — but we can guarantee that your children will love coming to the South Padre Island Adventure Park for zipline adventures, mini golf games, and much more! Head to the petting zoo after cruising along the treetops on the zipline to feed some of the local animals. If you want to keep your adrenaline pumping, hop in one of the go-karts to go for a race around the track!
One of the best full-day events you can do during your stay in South Padre Island is going to Sapphire Spa. Kick back, relax, and de-stress during your time in this spa center. Enjoy a self-guided treatment as you detox from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
I mean, you ARE on vacation after all — so you should be relaxed! Book a massage at the Sapphire Spa, enjoy a facial, and unplug from your phone and laptop. We guarantee that this is one of the top things to do during your stay in one of our South Padre Island condos for rent.
