South Padre Island Weather for Easter
If you want the boundless beach days of summer without the crowds, Easter is the perfect time to visit South Padre Island. The holiday arrives after the whirlwind excitement of Spring Break, ushering in a taste of the gorgeous summer days. The cool spring mornings warm up to pleasant afternoons hovering around the low 80s, rarely dipping below 70F. The evenings still retain the brisk ocean breeze of spring, with temperatures falling to the high 60s. It’s a good idea to pack a cozy sweater or windbreaker to keep you warm in the evenings, but chances are you’ll find the lights winds refreshing after a day out on the beach.
Brunch by the Bay
The Easter holiday is usually synonymous with people in their Sunday best heading in and out of the local churches and parishes around the island. However, once the congregants leave their places of worship, an obligatory brunch stop is always on the itinerary. Thankfully, South Padre Island has a tremendous number of restaurants that specialize in this quintessential weekend meal. Furthermore, South Padre Island offers many establishments with Gulf-front views; try the Painted Marlin Grille, Café on the Beach, or Laguna BOB, just to name a few. Even if you don’t have a reservation for one of the more upscale dining establishments, there are many restaurants on Padre Boulevard that will accommodate you and your family.
Aside from the traditional Easter egg hunt, South Padre Island on this particular Sunday of the year lends itself to many outdoor activities. Since the temperatures are nearly perfect, many people choose the beach picnic as the ideal way to celebrate the holiday. Also, South Padre Island is known for its wealth of nautical activities and sports, so if this sounds like your cup of tea, don’t forget to check with some of the local outfitters in order to try windsurfing, jet-skiing, parasailing and much, much more.
Easter Egg Hunt
It’s not Easter without a traditional Easter egg hunt! Every year on Easter Sunday the island hosts the South Padre Island’s Farmers Market “Easter Egg Hunt.” The morning kicks off with the local farmers’ market and professional photos with the Easter Bunny. Then the egg hunt commences, with special prizes found within the colorful eggs. Bring the kids and get the Easter baskets ready! Located on gorgeous bay grounds of The Shores, the Easter Egg Hunt is easily accessible when you choose our Easter rentals in South Padre Island. Many of our rentals are located right in The Shores community, from large family beach houses to cozy coastal cottages for younger families.
Family Fun at Gravity Park
With a wide range of family friendly activities, South Padre Island is a favorite destination for a family beach getaway. Looking for heart-pumping action? Gravity Park is a must for kids and the young at heart. Race against your kids on the impressive go-kart track, take to the skies on the giant skycoaster swing or experience the reverse bungee swing. Simmer down with a round of mini golf or enjoy a ride on the Ferris wheel, taking in the surrounding views of the island. Brimming with adrenaline, Gravity Park is your playground for family-friendly thrills on South Padre Island.
Slow down the pace and venture out on the waters with a dolphin watching cruise. The warm waters of Laguna Madre are home to hundreds of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and other sea life. Learn about the local wildlife and ecology of the Laguna Madre as you cruise out onto the water. Watch as nets trawl in squid, crab, and sea urchins directly onboard as the crew shares insight into the aquatic life of this region. You’ll spot dolphins riding the wake of your boat all along the journey.
