South Padre Island offers 34 miles of golden sand along Texas Gulf coastline, perfect weather, clear blue waters, and endless fun. For nature lovers, there is South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center with a five-story high watchtower. South Padre Island Dolphin Research & Sealife Nature Center organizes popular boat tours to observe dolphins. Magnificent beaches all around the island are perfect for lounging on the sand, playing volleyball, or throwing Freezbie, running, and picnicking. You can go deep-sea fishing with one of many local boats and cook your catch on the beach at Andy Bowie Park. And when the sun goes down, fun without sun starts. There is live music, great drinks, and fresh seafood in many places. Some of the best known are Palm St. Pier, Clayton’s Beach Bar & Grill, Tequila Sunset, Louie’s Backyard, The Quarterdeck Lounge inside the Isla Grand, The Garden Grille & Bar at the Hilton Garden Inn, and Coral Reef.
