South-Padre-Island is a resort city situated on the barrier island of Padre Island, which is located off the southernmost tip of Texas. The whole island is sometimes referred to as South Padre Island. As a whole, Padre Island is sparsely populated, but South Padre Island (the city) had a population of 2,816 as of the 2010 census. The town is accessible via a causeway from the town of Port Isabel on the mainland. Fishing is very popular on South Padre Island, along with a variety of other watersports, such as jet skiing, kiteboarding, swimming, birding or horseback riding on the beach. The island is home to Padre Island National Seashore, which offers ecological tours and camping. Andy Bowie Park is at the northern end of South Padre Island and has a trail that is very popular with bird watchers and nature enthusiasts. Really, any type of seashore activity you're interested in can be found here, whether you want to just sit and relax and watch the ocean waves, or go parasailing or on a dolphin watching tour. Every year, the Texas International Fishing Tournament is held in late summer and various others are held throughout the year. In March, the island is a popular spring break destination. South Padre Island also has a wide variety of restaurants, live entertainment, music, dancing and nightlife. One other thing South Padre Island offers - incredibly beautiful sunsets, not to be missed, so don't forget your camera!

South Padre Island Weather & Climate

The southern tip of Texas has a semi-arid climate. This region is the southernmost tip of the American Great Plains Region. Subtropical forests line the Rio Grande River, and ranches dominate the landscape inland. Summers are generally hot and dry but at times can be humid if winds come off the warmer Gulf of Mexico. Rain is more abundant in the coastal regions than inland. Occasionally in winter a strong front can come through, bringing light snow at sea level. The winters in the inland region are cold and dry as Arctic sweeps downward. Snow is a rare occurrence due to the lack of humidity in winter. Tornadoes can occur in this region, but less frequent than in other parts of the state.
