South Padre Island is the only tropical island in Texas - known for its postcard perfect beaches and endless summer weather. The waves here are the largest, most consistent, and best shaped waves on the coast, thanks to its much shorter and deeper continental shelf. The nature here is crazy - 60 miles of protected beaches and wildlife to explore.
This Island is a place to disconnect, be with nature...and after the sun goes down, enter back into the wild. After sunset drinks at the pier, and hopefully a random rocket launch viewing - make sure to try a few of these "Surf Shop Approved" go-tos from the crew at On the Beach.
