South Padre has various activities such as bay fishing, deep water fishing, horseback riding on the beach, zip lining, dolphin watching, dinner cruises, sand castle lessons, water sports, waterpark, and more! Also, if you are a seafood fanatic they have amazing seafood with a variety of restaurants. During the summer, Clayton’s and Louie’s Backyard have fireworks on the weekends by the beach. It is very nice!
Beachside bar & grill is located in Pearl South Padre resort. Their buffet was delicious and it included unlimited champagne and mimosas. Bottomless mimosas anyone?
Clayton’s food was really good but they have the best drinks in town hands down. Their turbo Pina Coladas are dangerous and yummy! They also have a live DJ and a live band at night. They are the biggest beach bar in Texas and there is entertainment all day long.
Louie’s Backyard has a buffet that offers crab legs and prime rib. Can I say heaven? Plus the view is spectacular and watching the sunset there is a must. They also offer nightlife in their bar upstairs with a live DJ.
The meatball café has amazing food, good servers but HORRIBLE kitchen staff. I literally waited for my salad 30 minutes, for my pasta 45 minutes and for the pizza almost 1 ½ hours! It was horrible. The food is very exquisite though. I would recommend calling it in and taking it to go.
So now you know all the great places to visit in South Padre Island, Texas.
