Make Your Spring Break Memorable
Book Your Spring Break Island Getaway, Today
If you’re looking for a truly family-friendly spring break destination, look no further than South Padre Island. We’re happy to welcome families from north and south to our tropical paradise for special holidays like Semana Santa and Easter or just a fun vacation to spend time together. Our beaches are the cleanest and widest in Texas; no glass or loud music is allowed, and all dogs must be leashed. We also know that safe, peaceful accommodations are important to a perfect trip, so South Padre Island offers a variety of family-friendly and family-only accommodations, ensuring your Spring Break is all about celebrating what’s important — family. Once you’re here, you’ll hardly know where to begin, since there’s so much fun that’s perfect for you to enjoy together. Year-round sandcastle lessons on the beach are a perfect way to learn something new together just as the clean, clear water is really beginning to warm up. Your family can enjoy a pirate cruise complete with face painting, sword fighting, and a treasure hunt, or spend time exploring the bay on a dolphin cruise that lets you get up close and personal with South Texas wildlife. Our very own Schlitterbahn Water Park opens its 13 slides in April, and a wide variety of watersports are here year round for your enjoyment — everything from stand-up paddleboarding to snorkeling.
If Mom needs some time on her own, she might consider a relaxing day visiting South Padre’s spas for massages and beauty treatments, a nail salon for the perfect mani or pedi, painting or pottery classes at Art Space, or lunch at any of our beloved island restaurants for local specialities like Gulf shrimp and Texas-sized margaritas. Dad may enjoy a half or full day of deep sea fishing on a chartered boat with the option to have a local restaurant fry up his catch for the whole family for a truly special dinner; he might also enjoy a chance to try something a bit bolder like tandem skydiving, scuba diving, or kiteboarding (or maybe just a relaxing game of golf). When the family gets back together in the evening, you and your children can watch the fireworks from the beach or a chartered boat and enjoy each other’s company on a spring break that you’ll always remember.
