Imagine waking up to the sound of roaring waves. In South Padre Island, there are three coastal campgrounds, along with a whole range of outdoor activities. Its beautiful beaches are not only perfect for soaking up the sun, but you can also try surfing, kiteboarding, deep-sea fishing, horse-back riding, parasailing, dolphin-watching, etc. A visit to Sea Turtle Inc. is a must, to meet the injured sea-turtles in their rehab. The avid bird watchers must take a trip to SPI Birding and Nature Center, to catch a glimpse of Rio Grande Valley birds. This coastal town is very popular amongst the college students of Texas and the other parts of the US, especially for their beach parties.
