Ultimate Spring Break Guide

Once a year, the Island never sleeps, stops, or slows down. This is your Spring Break. From the larger-than-life parties to the concerts with today’s hottest artists, we’re sharing our “cheat sheet” to help you navigate the Island and have the ultimate Spring Break you’ll still be talking about back on campus.  Have fun, be safe, and enjoy Spring Break Island!


Rockstar Beach at Isla Grand Beach Resort
Experience a Spring Break pool party that is world famous! Located on Texas’ best beach, join thousands of college students everyday from 12-6pm for DJs, MCs, celebrity guests and national performing artists.

Clayton’s Beach Bar & Grill
Bask in the sun on Clayton’s huge beach deck and enjoy your favorite adult beverage while dancing to the best music from around the world. Get involved on-stage and party with the most beautiful girls at Spring Break!


With more than 50 restaurants, bars and nightclubs there’s something for everyone. There are plenty of places all over the Island where you can eat, drink, see live music and DJs, and dance your flip flops off!
Island Insider Tip: Make sure you check out the Entertainment District (Laguna Blvd. between Palm St. and Whiting St.)!


Ready to check some things off your bucket list while you’re here? With a variety of watersports and activities that are perfect for the thrillseeker, we’ve got you covered. Go parasailing and see the Island from 600+ feet over the Laguna Madre and enjoy the breathtaking view! Looking for something a little more extreme? Our buddies at Skydive SPI can help you out and give you the experience (and view) of a lifetime. Have the need for speed? Rent a jet ski and ride the waves! Or if you’re looking for more of a “chill” watersport, try paddleboarding on for size with Eh Brah SUP.


The Island Metro (formerly the Wave) is a free shuttle system, operating daily from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. The shuttle runs the length on the Island, stopping at beach accesses, hotels, restaurants, attractions, and other points of interest. Island Metro also has another route that crosses the Queen Isabella Causeway into Port Isabel. All of the shuttles are equipped with a bicycle rack, ADA accessible with wheelchair lifts, and offer complimentary WiFi. For the Island Metro route and schedule click here.
