South Padre Island

South Padre Island Travel Tips

South Padre Island is an oasis on the south Texas gulf coast, best known for the resort town at the southern tip of the island. The warm, calm waters and pristine beaches are perfect for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, and relaxing. Our South Padre Island beach house rentals, condo rentals, and resorts are conveniently located along the beach near top attractions. Known as SPI to the locals, it is also home to hundreds of bird species and exotic sea life that can be spotted from the boardwalks of the Laguna Madre Nature Trail. The Dolphin Research & Sea Life Nature Center offers dolphin-watching tours on the crystalline water, while Sea Turtle, Inc. rehabilitates sea turtles and provides hands-on education for families to enjoy.

Build sandcastles, learn to windsurf, and spot whales off the coast. Unwind in paradise with the comforts of home in Vacation Rentals by Choice Hotels™ beach houses, condos, and resorts on South Padre Island.
