Located at the state's tropical tip, a wide range of year-round
activities make South Padre Island a fantastic destination for
vacations, meetings and spring break trips!
Water adventures abound on South Padre Island. Whether you're a pro or you're eager to learn, this is the place to come for everything from snorkeling and scuba diving to surfboarding, windsurfing
and kiteboarding, to horseback riding along the beach! The winds are
right, the temperature is right and the scenery is unforgettable.
