When to Visit South Padre Island, TX

South Padre Island benefits from its location in the Gulf of Mexico in many ways. First, the island regularly enjoys fine weather, blue skies, and nearly year-round warmth. The ideal timing of your stay really depends on what you plan to do during your visit. Sunbathers can sprawl on the beach anytime from March into early fall, around October. However, swimmers might best enjoy a dip in the surf during the peak summer months. You can expect more rain in the spring, and fall's hurricane season sometimes brings winds and rain that can interrupt beach time. Smart and spontaneous travelers can check the forecast and splurge on a last-minute beach escape — often at quite a discount.

If you don't like crowds or prefer a more family-oriented atmosphere, steer away from visiting the island during March, which is when the raucous spring break parties take over and an estimated 25,000 additional people flood into South Padre Island. Then again, if you are looking to party, this is the place to be and the time to come!
