Things to Do in South Padre Island
Calling South Padre Island home for a long-term means you can fall into the rhythmic life of coastal living. Find your favorite route to begin the day with long walks or jogs along the oceanfront, letting the salty air clear your mind as you ready yourself for the day. Taste test around until you find the coffee shop that serves up the perfect latte, and then become a regular there, getting to know the barista. All around there are ways to settle into everyday life in South Padre, while still feeling a little bit like life has become a constant vacation!
A long-term stay on South Padre lets you fully experience the coastal delights of this island destination. Taste freshly caught fish, gulf shrimp, and succulent oysters at South Padre’s popular waterfront restaurants. Bite into a mahi po’boy and fish ceviche at Pier 19, or treat yourself to a red snapper Rockefeller and king crab at Liam’s Steakhouse and Oyster Bar.
Cast your line into the ocean waters on a deep sea fishing charter. Osprey Cruises offers year round all-inclusive and private charters with opportunities to catch red snapper, kingfish, amberjack, grouper, and tuna. With many of our long term rentals in South Padre Island located steps away from the beach, you’re just a moment away from fun in the sun with surfing, sandcastle lessons, parasailing, or simply sunbathing at the beach.
A South Padre Island Sea Turtle Experience
Not only is South Padre Island an ideal beach destination with long stretches of sand, oceanfront restaurants, and breezy accommodations, but there are also several opportunities for enjoying the region’s wildlife. Whether you’re a regular wildlife watcher or you simply want to see a different side of South Padre, observing some of the area’s wildlife can be a great way to spend the afternoon.
At Sea Turtle Inc, sick and injured sea turtles are cared for, rehabilitated, and released when possible, although they also house several non-releasable turtles, terrapins, and tortoises that cannot survive in the wild and are used to educate visitors. Rehabilitating 40-100 turtles per year for release, Sea Turtle Inc plays an important part in maintaining the health of these interesting creatures in South Padre Island. Visitors can learn more about the work they are doing to help sea turtles, as well as view some of their resident turtles such as Alison, the first sea turtle in the world to use a prosthetic flipper! While visitors cannot touch or feed the sea turtles, they can observe them eating and interacting during scheduled feedings.
A favorite of visitors and locals alike is to attend a hatchling release, where newly hatched baby sea turtles make their way from the sand down to the ocean. This happens during mid-June to early August, depending on when the females begin nesting. Attending a hatchling release along the beach at dawn is certainly a memorable way to start your morning in South Padre Island! With a long-term stay in South Padre Island, it’s even possible to become a volunteer at Sea Turtle Inc with a minimum commitment of three months.
