How to get to South Padre Island

Imagine a beautiful tropical Island with miles and miles of unspoiled beaches. It lies in the sun beside the sparkling Gulf of Mexico. It is a place where sparkling beaches, warm water, friendly hospitality and relaxing activities come together. It's not your imagination, it's the ideal vacation paradise, it's South Padre Island.

Located on the tropical tip of Texas, getting here is easy. Whether you drive, fly or arrive by boat, the Island is easily accessible. If traveling in by air, vacationers can fly into one of three airports in the Rio Grande Valley. Ground transportation is available at all three airports along with most major car rental companies and taxi service. If traveling by car, the scenic route to the Island is made easy by well maintained four-lane highways. If arriving by boat, the Intercoastal channel provides access to all boats, from the smallest to the largest.
