Where is North Padre Island, TX?

North Padre Island is located near Mustang Island, 30 miles down-island from Port Aransas and 33 miles from Corpus Christi. Nestled between protected wetlands, pretty sand dunes, and a long stretch of shoreline, our North Padre Island vacation rentals are a true respite from the real world.

Beaches on North Padre Island

The highlight of North Padre Island is the Padre Island National Seashore, which protects 70 miles of pristine coastline. This landscape is home to around 380 species of birds, as well as a variety of wildlife that includes ghost crabs, coyotes, and deer.

Padre Island National Seashore offers ranger-guided activities and lectures and a paved nature trail that's perfect for every age and mobility. There are fishing spots for everything from cat fish to shark (please note that proper licensing is required), so make sure to pack your tackle. The park hosts a sea turtle hatching program during the summer and guests are invited to witness the release of thousands of little baby turtles into the ocean.

North Padre Island's outdoor activities

North Padre Island sits with the Gulf of Mexico on one side, accessible by the Packery Channel, and the quiet waters of Laguna Madre on the other. With surroundings areas like this, it's no wonder that water and beach activities are some of the most popular things to do here. From kayaking to kite boarding, beach combing to crabbing, these beautiful beaches are jam-packed with adventure.

Birding is a favorite past time here. North Padre Island plays hosts to hundreds of species throughout the year, including the endangered Whooping Crane which spends the winter along the Texas coastline.

Whether you're an early riser or a night owl, strolling along the shoreline is a must. The morning view promises to start your day off right, while the sunset provides a romantic backdrop.

Things to do on North Padre Island

Need a break from the water? Book a tee time at Padre Isles Country Club or Newport Dunes. If you're hoping for some family fun, take the little ones for putt-putt at Treasure Island, a pirate-themed course and arcade.

Although your North Padre Island vacation rental comes with its own kitchen in which you may cook your own catch your way (fresh crab legs and butter—yum!), don't worry if cooking isn't your forte. There are several fun dining options along the shore, including Doc's at Marker 37 Marina, with fresh catch and live entertainment. Family-friendly options include the traditional Italian Padre Pizzeria and Snoopy's, which features a varied Gulf Coast cuisine.

Our North Padre Island vacation rentals embrace the relaxed vibe of a coastal town while celebrating a vibrant beach landscape. Come and explore the Lone Star State's well-kept secret today.
