Surf’s Up

South Padre Island boasts miles of sandy beaches perfect for sunbathing, swimming, beach volleyball, and building sandcastles. Enjoy activities like parasailing, jet skiing, and banana boat rides if you’re looking for a little adventure on the water.

 

More aquatic activities include embarking on a thrilling deep-sea fishing excursion, trying kiteboarding or windsurfing, or exploring under the sea with snorkeling and scuba diving tours. If you are fascinated by marine life, book a guided boat tour and experience the beauty of the Gulf Coast, including encounters with playful sea creatures like dolphins.

 

Discover the Great Outdoors

Book a morning, sunset, or moonlight beach horseback ride with Island Adventure Park. The company also offers ziplining, watersports rides and rentals, and a petting zoo..  Learn about marine conservation efforts and observe rescued sea turtles up close with a visit to Visit Sea Turtle, Inc. This educational facility provides medical care to sea turtles, and protects the species through conservation efforts, education, and applied research.

 

Go for a hike at Laguna Madre Nature Trail. Here, you can immerse yourself in nature as you walk or bike along this scenic trail, which offers picturesque views of the surrounding landscape. Or beat the heat and enjoy a day of family-friendly fun at the expansive Schlitterbahn Waterpark, featuring water slides, lazy rivers, and wave pools.

 

Get Cultured

Book a sandcastle lesson with family and friends, listen to live music, or carve out some time to spend at local museums and galleries. Port Isabel Historical Museum is a great place to start. Entrance fees are economical and range from $2.50 to $5.00 per person and the museum, housed in a building from the late 1800s, has two exhibit levels covering the history of the Laguna Madre Area. Don’t forget to stop at the gift shop on your way out.

Description

Seafood is plentiful year-round at this beachside town. You’ll find some of the best Tex-Mex on South Padre Island, too due to the city’s proximity to Mexico. Keep reading for a few of our favorite restaurants in the area:

 

Head to Padre Island Brewing Co. to sample a large selection of craft beers brewed onsite. There’s no pub menu here, though. The food menu is filled with options for everyone, including plant-based and gluten-free substitutions. Try the Texas quail or a large pizza; fresh snapper filets and beer-battered shrimp are sure to be delicious, too.

 

Ceviche Ceviche is a great fast casual dining establishment if you’re a fan of raw fish. It opens in the morning and often sells out before closing. Expect the freshest selection here, plus all the add-ons we love like avocado, fruits, veggies, and lots of sauces.

 

Enjoy Italian at Meatball Cafe, F&B (a steakhouse), or Gabriella’s. And you can’t ever go wrong with tacos at Grapevine Cafe or traditional Mexican dishes like tamales at Mariscos Playa Azul Cafe. A local favorite, Blackbeards’ Restaurant, has been serving fresh seafood, burgers, and Gulf Coast cuisine with waterfront views since 1978.
