While the tip of this barrier island is best known for its spring break crowds, take time to get off the beaten path and you’ll be rewarded with a slower pace of beach life. The surfing scene is especially vibrant, thanks to outfits like the South Padre Surf Company where expert Gene Gore and his team work with beginners and experts alike. You can also take an ecology tour with the Dolphin Watching Boat company, where guides not only take you to see sea mammals, but also talk you through the region’s rich marine life.
