South Padre Island - The Sandcastle Capital of the World - isn't for everyone. Thank goodness. But if you enjoy swimming, sandcastle building, windsurfing, fishing, surfing, beach reading, skim-boarding, fine dining, parasailing, happy-houring, bicycling, surfing, water-parking, shelling, bird watching, beach lounging, snorkeling, dancing, souvenir/beach clothing shopping, yoga, kayaking, horseback riding, dolphin-cruising, beach-strolling, go-carting, wave-riding, boogie-boarding, weight-training, kite-boarding, margarita-sipping and more in a tropical environment that is right here in Texas and requires no passport or special language skills... well, then South Padre Island just might be for you!
