South Padre Island has much more to offer than just surf and sand. While vacationing there, visitors can choose from a wide variety of activities and attractions - located on the Island or a short drive away - to fill their time between trips to the beach.
Steady breezes are ideal for windsurfers, and calm, clear waters are a favorite with snorklers and divers. Anglers, too, are not overlooked at South Padre, and plenty of fishing opportunities are available in both the Laguna Madre and the Gulf.
In addition to outdoor activities, South Padre Island is home to Schitterbahn water park.
