South Padre Island National Seashore

Padre Island National Seashore

Visitors are sure to soak up plenty of sun on the South Padre Island National Seashore, the world’s longest remaining undeveloped stretch of barrier island. Encompassing more than 130,000 acres, Padre Island is famous for its fishing, camping and windsurfing. The Bird Island Basin area on the Laguna Madre is one of the nation’s top spots for windsurfing with its steady wind, warm water and shallow depths. Visitors can also relax by the ocean or snorkel and scuba dive right off the coast.
