South Padre Island Beach

South Padre Island, Texas, United States of America

Notorious as a spring break hotspot, South Padre Island is located in the Gulf of Mexico along the Southern Texas coastline. With mega resorts serving travelers of all types, this little island may feel to many as more of a Mexican resort town than a city in Texas and with the Mexican border just miles south, the island is the last big stop in the central part of the US before running into Mexico.

The narrow island stretches north to south and beautiful beaches surround the massive resorts, dining and entertainment options providing an entirely different experience for any beachgoer. Though this area sees a massive wave of tourism during the high season, the resorts also see steady traffic year round as vacationers head south from North American cities to take advantage of the warm Caribbean temperatures and pristine coastline.

Windsailers, parasailers and scuba divers are all in luck here as the area plays host to many different adventure options that take full advantage of the warm Caribbean Sea. For those looking for something a bit more relaxing, soaking up the sun with a cold cocktail or enjoying a spa treatment at the local resort spa makes for a tranquil day of pampering at its finest.
