South Padre Island is a 34 mile stretch of tropical beaches, fine dining, nightlife, excellent deep-sea fishing or bay fishing, and shopping. Picture a relaxing vacation filled with water sports, golfing, horseback riding, dolphing watching, and swimming or snorkeling from sunrise to sunset! And imagine, watching the beautiful sunset while enjoying live music at one of the many superb waterfront restaurants located just blocks away! The white sandy beaches of South Padre are known throughout the world as some of the top beaches in America. The Island is famous for its secluded beaches, magnificent sunsets, and unspoiled natural sand dunes. The moderate temperatures year-round make South Padre Island the perfect spot in the continental United States for vacationers to play in the sun (why settle for Florida's rain and humidity?). And remember, Mexico is only thirty minutes away if you are interested in going south of the border to shop or sight see.
