Welcome to the Best Beach in Texas

According to the US News and World Report travel guide, South Padre Island is ranked as the # 1 beach in Texas. Once considered a premier spring break destination, South Padre Island’s beaches now welcome families in droves. This barrier island’s Gulf of Mexico vistas, affordable accommodations and 34 miles of wide, sandy shores attract travelers year after year. Some of the most coveted sands can be found in Isla Blanca Park, which sits on the southern edge of the island and features pavilions with food options, fishing spots, and more. Other fun attractions available on South Padre Island include Sea Turtle, Inc., a world-leading rehabilitation center for sea turtles, and the Sandcastle Trail, which features roughly 30 professionally constructed sandcastles located around the island.
