The very last resort town on the Gulf of Mexico in the most southern tip of Texas, South Padre Island is a very popular place for Canadian snowbirds. The beaches are super wide with beautiful sand dunes. You can found lots of big shells here and we saw a bunch of pelicans resting on the beach as well. It was fairly quiet, not too many people around, just a few fishermen and some people horseback riding. It was relaxing and peaceful, but I have to say it was a long boring drive from Corpus Christi to South Padre Island.
