When you think of beautiful barrier islands, Texas might not initially come to mind. But as soon as you set foot on South Padre Island, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a tropical oasis. The sight of emerald waters, miles of sandy coastline, and smiling locals will set the perfect tone for your vacation. If you’re looking to ensure you have a good time, reserve South Padre Island vacation rentals. With your own accommodation, you can enjoy all the benefits of staying somewhere new and exciting, while also taking advantage of the comforts of home you crave.
Greet the Texas day by waking up inside Beachview Condominiums 204. Cook yourself a luxurious breakfast—a vacation this grand calls for an omelet of kingly proportions—and slide your feet into your flip-flops for a day of exploration. Those traveling with family in tow will enjoy the brightly colored slides inside Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark. If thrills and wave pools aren’t your thing, there’s still tons to do in the area. Mosey to the iconic Point Isabel Lighthouse and explore relics from its past inside the Keepers Cottage. Head to the beach and enjoy a cold lemonade while the sun goes down—and don’t forget to stick a toe in the warm water. If time permits, a visit to Sea Turtle Inc., a nonprofit aiding in turtle rehabilitation and ocean conservation efforts, will be well worth the trip before returning to your comfortable accommodation.
On your next getaway, stay near the beach in style—and without bumping into hundreds of other hotel guests in the hall, when you stay at a vacation rental on South Padre Island. From opulent condo rentals like the ones inside Seabreeze 1 Condominiums, to entire homes that can be reserved for you and your travel companions, you’ll find the properties you’ve been searching for here on Travelocity. Save money when you book online today, and put the extra cash in your pocket toward renting paddleboards instead.
