General Info About South Padre Island, Texas

South Padre Island is part of the world’s longest barrier reef island and is located near the most southern portion of Texas. The island is connected to the mainland by the Queen Isabella Causeway, a 2.5-mile four-lane bridge with reported crossings of over 8 million per year. Plans are underway for a second access north of the current town limits and the extension of utilities to undeveloped parts of the island has already begun. The town of South Padre Island makes up only 5%-10% of the land that is available for development.

The community of South Padre Island is a township located in Cameron County with approximately 2,800 permanent year-round residents. However, many more Winter Texans or part-time residents claim South Padre Island as home for large portions of the year. It is also a popular destination for Mexican citizens, particularly those from Monterrey, Mexico.

South Padre Island is located at the same latitude as Miami, Florida. The Island enjoys a sub-topical environment with an average winter temperature of 65 degrees, an average summer temperature of 82 degrees and an average 253 days per year of sunshine.

The town's total area is about 1,200 acres on an island approximately 1/2 mile wide from beach to bay and 34 miles long. South Padre Island is bordered by the Gulf of Mexico on the east and by the Laguna Madre Bay on the west, one of only 5 hyper-saline bays in the world. The only saltier body of water in the U.S. is the Great Salt Lake. This unusual bay is home to diverse species of fish as well as sea turtles, dolphins, endangered brown pelicans and numerous other forms of marine and coastal wildlife.

Life on South Padre Island

South Padre Island is a small community. Our tropical weather and miles of beachfront make the island a tourist attraction and year-round delight for those of us who are fortunate enough to call South Padre Island our home. Here we put more miles on our bicycles than our cars, and the pace of life is decidedly slower than it is on the mainland. Island time means that you stop to marvel when the sun sets and forsake work for fishing or the beach every chance you get.

Among the locals, eccentric is the norm, and shorts are acceptable attire anywhere. The various tourist seasons cause the population to swell and shrink with families on summer vacation, Winter Texans escaping the chill of northern states, and spring breakers enjoying a holiday (despite what you hear, they really are nice kids).

South Padre Island has a council-manager form of government with a Board of Aldermen, consisting of a Mayor and five Aldermen. The City Manager is the chief executive officer of the town.

South Padre Island belongs to the Point Isabel Independent School District. Daily school bus service shuttles school age children across the bridge to Port Isabel's quality schools. Parks on the island include county parks Isla Blanca and Andy Bowie.

South Padre Island is an amazing destination for all kinds of water sports. We are considered the best location in the country for kite boarding. Windsurfers also come from all over the country to enjoy our breezy shallow bay. South Padre Island also offers vacationers a wide range of other activities: kayaking, parasailing, jet skiing, snorkeling/diving, horseback riding, bungee jumping, sun bathing, kite-flying, and sandcastle building just to name a few. We are fortunate and blessed to have it all.

With shallow sport fishing in the Laguna Madre Bay as well as great deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, there is a fishing expedition to fit every time frame and skill level. The area is famous for our bird watching and with our 'World Birding Center' is one of the best informational and interactive bird watching sites anywhere. The island is also home to “Sea Turtle, Inc.”, a sea turtle rescue, education and conservation center.

An excellent golf course is only 15 minutes away and we have some wonderful seafood dining, waterfront bars and live entertainment. Special activities occur throughout the year. During the summer, every Friday night is a celebration with fireworks over the bay. The island is host to several large fishing and water sport tournaments. Numerous festivals, such as “Bike Week” and “Sand Castle Days”, are annual events. The island boasts a large, beautiful convention center where concerts, craft shows, sporting events, and business conferences are held.

We are different from other south coastal areas in that our high tourist season is the summer as opposed to the winter. The highest tourist months are normally March (Spring Break), June, July and August, followed by the winter months when Winter Texans (our term for “Snow Birds’) populate the island in December, January and February.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Both Kathy and I are from Missouri. We had moved many times in our married life but all within the Midwest, working and raising our family. We both retired in 2007 after full career's and knew we wanted to move to a warm climate. The question was where. Over the next couple of years of traveling to several southern states we came to the conclusion that we wanted Texas to be our home. Neither of us had ever visited South Padre Island and our first thoughts were a lake home. We spent two different vacations touring Texas. As we traveled further south we finally ended up in the valley and stayed several nights on the island while traveling through the valley. By the time we had to go back to Missouri, we realized we had found the place we were looking. The beautiful sunrises and sunsets, the fishing, the easy going island life all was perfect for what we were looking.

Why the Owner Chose South Padre Island, TX, USA:
We are the first owners of unit #1 Coral Cove. We looked at several properties but this was the first one that we were shown. Our realtor told us she was going to show her favorite one first. Almost every day that we looked we kept asking her to take us back to this one. It became the benchmark to compare all other listings. Nothing even came close. The 10' ceilings and 8' doorways seemed to make all others even though close to the same size, seem so much smaller. This builder has built several buildings on the island improving each one over the last. This was one of the last. It has been our home for the last almost 5 years and we have enjoyed every minute.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
10' ceilings and 8' doorways make it seem very roomy. Only steps from the beach you can set outside at night and hear the gentle roar of the surf on the sand. Step out the front door and look to the west and enjoy the beautiful Laguna Madre Bay. It is walking distance to many restaurants, shopping and activities.
