South Padre Island attracts tourists of all ages with beautiful sparkling water and sandy beaches. The eclectic mix of bars and restaurants makes kicking back a breeze. A main draw to the island is the beachside live concerts at venues like Clayton’s Beach Bar, where you can grab refreshing drinks and tasty seafood.

Sea turtle nesting season starts on April 1 and extends until August. Organizations like Sea Turtle Inc. make it their mission to rescue and rehabilitate injured sea turtles. While these creatures are fascinating to watch, please let them know if you find a sea turtle on the beach, so they can be helped and released.

The Sand Crab Night Time Run takes place on April 30 at Clayton’s Beach Bar and Grill. Whether you’re a mall-walker or a marathon runner, you’re welcome to come out for the 5K and 10K races. The course travels along the beach, so the view is sure to be breathtaking. Visit the event’s website for more information.

Be sure to apply plenty of sunscreen and stay hydrated! Call us today to book your spring and summer beach vacation.
