South Padre Island is home to unlimited eateries, cafes, bars, and breakfast spots that take over this cool coastal town. Texas offers huge plates and strong cocktails that are sure to keep you full and happy all day long! So, head to one of these well-known bars during your time in South Padre Island while staying at a Franke Rentals home.
First, we can’t forget Driftwood Landing. This ideal location offers incredible views over the water, making it a great spot to head to for happy hour with your pals. Head here to also book a private event, host a wedding reception, watch the local fishermen, and sip on a craft cocktail. The vibes can’t be beaten.
Another cool spot to head to during your time in South Padre Island is the Clayton’s Beach Bar and Event Venue. If you are coming to this Texan town to spend time with your friends or family for an annual event, host your party here! You can also sip on some of the best daiquiris, pina coladas, margaritas, or unique cocktails. We recommend the Tsunami, filled with mango rum, white rum, orange juice, and fresh pineapple.
Next, wander down to Louie’s Backyard to dance the night away at one of the best night clubs in the entire state. Not only is this shopping spot open very late and has its doors open all year round, but you can attend some of the best live music, parties, and events in the entire surrounding area. Come here to dance in the Lookout Deck and Bar, watch fireworks shine brightly over the water, listen to local Mariachi Bands, and party with other spring-breakers during your time in Texas.
And you can’t forget Kelly’s Irish Pub. Everyone in the world loves a good Irish pub for Guinness, drinking, dancing, and chatting with locals. Head here to get some of the best craft beers on tap, sip on a pint of Guinness, and meet others in the surrounding area.
Last but not least, the Quarterdeck on Isla Grande is a cool stop to frequent if you are renting one of our vacation homes in South Padre Island. Guests love coming here due to the low prices and the live music almost every day of the week.
If you are looking for something else to do that takes advantage of the bright sunny weather and moderate temperatures in South Padre Island, head to one of the green spaces and parks on the coast.
First, Isla Blanca is one of the most well-known and popular beaches in South Padre Island due to its proximity to the downtown area, dozens of activities, and watersports. Those who are interested in taking part in surfing, biking, hiking, walking, boogie boarding, and parasailing should head here to burn a few calories and have some fun in the sun!
Plus, the Isla Blanca Beach also offers tons of amenities that make it perfect for families, those with kids, and those who have older adults. You can sit at the picnic areas to have a nice picnic lunch, sit on one of the many benches as you take a walk along the beach, and use the showers after a full day of building sandcastles and relaxing under your umbrella.
We also love coming to Isla Blanca Beach due to its spacious boardwalk. The boardwalk is the perfect spot to go for a walk, get a great view of the water, and have a nice lunch away from the beach crowds.
Another cool public space to check out during your time on South Padre Island is the Edwin King Atwood County Park. This idyllic community park is a special section of the beach that is ideal for young children to play, families to sit and have lunch in the shaded picnic areas and take full advantage of the waves for swimming and playing in the water. We love coming here directly from the city, as it offers easy access and cool sand dunes that make it feel a little more “wild” than other beaches on South Padre Island.
Last but not least, the Andy Bowie County Park Beach is a smart option for those who are located on the northern side of the island. This comfortable and cozy beach offers free access, paring, shaded pavilions, restrooms, and other amenities. Plus, we love coming here if you are interested in spending time relaxing on the beach under an umbrella or going to the South Padre Island Convention Center.
Not to mention, the South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center is just steps away from the white sand of the Andy Bowie Par — head here during the day to go for a walk on the Laguna Madre Nature Trail and check out the local wildlife.
