South Padre Island lies right at the tip of Padre Island in Texas, and the resort has some of the best beaches on the Gulf of Mexico coast. Dolphin watching, swimming and kayaking are all popular activities, and fishing both inshore and offshore is exceptional. South Padre Island is right next to the Mexican border, and visitors can reach it via Texas State Route 100 which connects the island to Port Isabel on the mainland, and goes on to join US 77/83.
Book a trip at South Padre Island Sailing Charters or spend the day at the Turtle Rescue Centre, there is always something to see or do in this friendly Texan resort.
Water sports are what South Padre Island is all about and whether you’re sailing on the Gulf or swimming at the beach, you’ll enjoy warm water all through the year. Summer is perfect for surfing and swimming and warm bath temperatures of around 82F or 28C to 86F or 30C in mid August are to be expected. The lowest temperatures are found in February with the water falling to 63F or 17C to 70F or 21°C.
