Beyond Spring Break: A South Padre Island To-Do List Beyond Spring Break: A South Padre Island To-Do List

Beyond Spring Break: A South Padre Island To-Do List






For most people, South Padre Island in Texas is usually associated with rowdy Spring Break parties. With booze cruises and beach beers and all the shenanigans you see in all those movies about the American college experience.
So when I got invited to visit South Padre Island by Texas Tourism last month, I was a little skeptical. I mean, I don’t really party – hell, I don’t really even drink!
But then I started poking around online to see what else there was to do on South Padre. And I was surprised to find lots of things that had nothing at all to do with partying. Things like dolphin cruises and paddleboarding and horseback riding and a sea turtle rescue center.

So I agreed to go. Because one of the things I love most about what I do is being able to dispel misconceptions and set the record straight about destinations that have a lot more to offer than people assume.
South Padre Island is definitely one of those destinations. After spending four days there, I concluded that not only is it a great destination for people who love the heat and the outdoors, but it’s also a year-round destination that can appeal to everyone from Spring Breakers to families with kids.

Take a moment to read my SPI to-do list and discover what there is to do on South Padre Island OTHER than hang out on the beach and drink.
10 Things to Do on South Padre Island
Rent a paddleboard
I’m so happy that paddleboarding has taken off and become as popular as it has. Not only is it a great way to be out on the water, but paddleboarding can be a great workout, too! There are quite a few rental options when it comes to getting a board and heading out to explore South Padre’s canals and Laguna Madre, but my pick is Air Padre. They are more well-known for their kiteboarding lessons, but they also rent paddleboards, kayaks, jet skis, and more.

What I liked about renting from them was the fact that they have big plastic paddleboards that are almost like sit-atop kayaks – meaning that they are super stable for standing on! We rented boards for two hours and enjoyed paddling around in the Laguna.
Forget paddleboard yoga – I’m pioneering paddleboard gymnastics!
Tip: I would do this early in the morning, as it can start to get really hot (and sometimes windy) in the afternoon.
Go horseback riding on the beach
Another great morning activity is a horseback riding tour with Island Adventure Park. To get there, you have to leave the town and drive down a road surrounded on both sides by sand dunes, which in itself is pretty cool. The riding tour lasts about 90 minutes, and has you riding along the quiet beach and up into the dunes.

I LOVE horses and horseback riding a lot, and this was therefore one of my favorite things I did on South Padre Island.

Island Adventure has a lot of horses to choose from, and the guides will match you up with one that fits your riding experience. The best part is that this is a very affordable adventur...
