Sometimes, you don’t feel like cooking — even when you have an amazing and spacious kitchen like you do in your elite South Padre Island rental! And you know what, that’s okay — you may have been out all day at the beach, wandering around the local shopping streets, or hiking on one of the nearby nature trails. Instead of heading home to cook, it could be fun to spend a night out on the town at one of the local restaurants. But where should you go?
Daddy’s Seafood and Cajun Kitchen is a casual, laid-back, and homely restaurant that is known for its Cajun dishes filled with strong flavors and a spicy kick! There are tons of items on the expansive menu, including sandwiches, meat dishes, pasta, and classic “po-boy” sandwiches that make it feel like you are in New Orleans!
We recommend trying the Red Snapper Rockefeller with spinach, bacon, and shrimp in a cheese sauce. Or you can try the Grilled Tuna Jambalaya with shrimp, sausage, crawfish, and scallops — a seafood feast! If you want a traditional Cajun dish, you can’t go wrong with The Whiskey Bay Fish Plate — a massive meal of blackened filet, shrimp, mushrooms, and sausage in a creamy and cheesy sauce.
Another favorite spot among the locals and yearly tourists is The Sea Ranch, a casual seafood restaurant that uses local produce, vegetables, and fish to churn out mouthwatering and tasty dishes. With such a wide selection of seafood to choose from, it can be hard to know where to start!
However, we would recommend getting The Heat From the Deep dish to split with the table, featuring four gulf shrimp stuffed with cream cheese and jalapenos. Or you can get the fan-favorite Onion Blossom or hot artichoke parmesan cheese dip.
For the main course, you can’t go wrong with the 14-ounce rib-eye steak with a side of rice pilaf, baked potato, or scalloped potatoes. If you want some of fresh seafood, try the tenderloin kabobs and shrimp over rice pilaf with a soup and salad.
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. This beach 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. 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. These spots 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!
