From Travel Channel: ” Powder Soft Beaches line South Padre Island’s sun soaked shores, and gentle , shallow waves of the Gulf of Mexico tumble onto land. This postcard setting has helped SPI gain fame as a Year Round Beach Haven for Families, Couples, and the scores of spring breakers who descend here each March”
Plenty of water activities are available besides lounging on the beach and watching kids play in the sand. You can catch the wind and ride the surf with any of the water sports on the island of South Padre.
Or, you can go on a sailing charter.
