So Perfect. So Padre.

Each year, visitors who are looking to exchange freezing temperatures and shoveling snow for endless sunshine, flock South Padre Island, the only tropical island in Texas. South Padre Island’s moderate temperatures make our beach perfect for strolling and collecting shells, fishing, or sinking your toes in the sand and watching the waves roll in.
