Beautiful Weather, All Year Long
Delightfully mild temperatures and warm, calm water make any time of the year a great time to visit South Padre Island. With more than 300 days of sunshine, our average winter temperature is a beautiful 65 degrees. Imagine yourself relaxing on a pristine beach, kicking back in a deck chair in your swimsuit when everyone else at the office is buried in snow or bundling up against the freezing wind. Who needs a sled when you’ve got a surfboard? Of course, if surfing isn’t your thing, you can also plan on snorkeling, kiteboarding, windsurfing, parasailing, stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, jet skiing, or horseback riding on the beach, all in our warm South Texas sunshine. The holiday season brings a lighted boat parade, the official lighting of South Padre Island, and a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus (even Santa enjoys a winter escape to the tropics!).
Because of our unique climate, the Island’s summer average temperatures are in the mid-80s. It’s the perfect temperature to come and play with us in the sparkling, clear waters of the Gulf or sip an icy drink while touring the bay by chartered boat. You may want to plan a trip for Independence Day when our summerlong fireworks are at their most spectacular, or perhaps you’ll visit us for TIFT, Texas’ largest saltwater fishing tournament. Go golfing, cruise around the island on your bike or a Segway tour, or duck inside one of our fantastic dining establishments for some famous Gulf shrimp. Whatever it is you enjoy doing most, South Padre Island is the perfect place to escape the summer heat or winter cold. Plan your tropical getaway today!
