South Padre Island is known for having the most beautiful beaches in Texas. In contrast to the other beaches along the Texas coast, the sparkling clear blue green water and gently sloping sand beaches of South Padre Island more resemble those of the Carribean.

With our mild coastal climate - you can expect temperatures in the summer to average in the mid 80s and in the mid 60s in the winter. Water temperatures in the summer are typically 80-85 degrees.
