Fall is a great time of year to visit South Padre Island and enjoy the coast without the big crowds. A recent article in the Dallas Morning News agrees! Our weather is perfectly pleasant, the water temperatures still warm, and the island is a tranquil beach destination. The beaches are quiet and beautiful for long walks and there are some great weekend events to enjoy.
In the off season, you’ll have no trouble getting fed at one of the many year-round restaurants on South Padre Island that serve anything from fresh seafood to traditional Mexican favorites. (Some of our favorites include Blackbeard’s, Gabriella’s, and Cap’ N Roy’s.)
There are also plenty of activities to keep all members of the family busy throughout your stay. Be sure to take advantage of inexpensive family-friendly fun at Schlitterbahn Waterpark, South Padre Island Birding Center, and Sea Turtle Inc. Evening entertainment for the grown-ups can be found at bay bars like Coconut’s, Louie’s Backyard, and Laguna Bob’s.
Even better, the rates are very reasonable on lots of wonderful getaways. Give Padre Getaways a call and we will help you plan a fall trip to the coast. Come and explore all that South Padre Island has to offer!
