South Padre Island travel tips

Let us help you with the best tips about South Padre Island

Best time to visit South Padre Island

South Padre Island is blessed with plenty of sunshine all year round. Average temperatures stay in the range of 65 – 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Spring break is a particularly crowded time and you’ll find youngsters enjoying loud parties at all hours throughout the island. However, during the rest of the year, the island exudes a relaxed vibe, perfect for sun seekers and families. The best time to visit is from September – February. From December – February, the bay waters may a bit too cold to enjoy a swim, but there are plenty of other activities and events to keep you entertained. In the summer months from June – August, there is a chance that you will encounter some unfriendly hurricane weather. Do keep an eye on the weather reports if you plan your trip during this time.

Getting around South Padre Island

South Padre Island is a small town of about 2 square miles and can easily be explored on foot in a day. You can also hop on to the free public shuttle called WAVE that runs the length of the island, daily from 7.00 a.m. – 9.00 p.m. Call ahead and book a taxi from any of the reputed taxi service companies such as A Cabs, BB’s Taxi, JJ’s Taxi, and Padre Cab Co. If you are looking to explore some of the neighboring towns such as Port Isabel or Brownsville, it is best to have your own set of wheels.

The wide sandy beaches are perfect for sprawling out and sunbathing, or for swimming in the calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The shallow waters make it an attractive destination for families with young kids. Other than the beaches, the island is also renowned for its excellent fishing, as well as a wide range of water-based activities such as kiteboarding, kayaking, paddle and surf boarding, or windsurfing. If you wish to explore the rest of the island, here are a few suggestions on what to see and do.
