10 Beautiful Vrbo Beach Rentals on South Padre Island
Savvy vacationers know to look further afield when deciding where to take their next trip. Florida is beautiful, but it’s by no means the only place in the United States for an amazing beach vacation. South Padre Island offers visitors something special.
Being on the Texas side of the US-Mexico border, many guests take advantage of the location to take short jaunts south. The waters of the gulf are as warm and calm as anywhere else, and water sports are very popular.
There is a great selection of things to do and see on South Padre Island. The vast majority of the island consists of scenic protected areas. Only the southern tip is developed, which means there is plenty of unspoiled nature to see. The area is particularly popular with birdwatchers, but wildlife is also abundant in the water, with dolphins being a common sight.
Major attractions include the Gravity Park amusement park and countless smaller places and experiences popular with children and adults alike. Traffic on the roads is usually quite high, but many visitors like to drive to the beaches outside of the southern tip. That said, bringing or renting a car is not necessary. Most of the city can be reached on foot or by bike, and a free shuttle takes guests wherever they need to go.
If that sounds like a can’t-miss getaway experience, check out these 10 Vrbo vacation rentals on South Padre Island. The nature of the island means that every property is close to the beach, but that’s not the only thing these homes have going for them!
