If you're looking for the perfect tranquil spot to enjoy a Texas vacation, then pack your bags and make the trip down south to the waterfront community of Laguna Vista. You'll revel in the beautiful mixture of tranquility and fun-filled possibilities as the calm waters of Laguna Madre provide the perfect backdrop for days of bayside relaxation and adventures.
With easy access to local attractions, family-friendly destinations, and a seemingly endless array of ways to enjoy the deep blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Laguna Vista is an ideal spot for groups of vacationers to come dive into memory-making excursions, couples to get away from the daily grind, or for a solo trip to unwind and experience sun-drenched days and the rich culture on the beach.
Hugging the coastline of the mainland, Laguna Vista is just a quick 10-mile drive across the bay to South Padre Island. This ideal location also puts you a scenic coastal 400-mile drive from the iconic beaches of Galveston. Surrounded by the peace of the beach and exciting attractions close at hand, Laguna Vista puts the best of it all at your fingertips.
Whether you're a pro or your swing could use a whole lot of work, take a day to golf in the beauty of the Texas Gulf Coast. Book a tee time on one of the public courses and drive down the fairways to avoid the well-placed hazards. Reserve a lesson with an expert to get the glitches out, or simply bask in a friendly round or two with your crew.
Just a short drive from the heart of Laguna Vista and steps from the shore, the Dolphin Research and Sea Life Center offers a great opportunity for families and groups to come learn about the local marine life and interact with some of the wet and wild characters that live there. Book your spot on a tour to head out on a boat and see wild dolphins in their natural habitat and snag a picture that you'll remember for a lifetime.
When you finish at the research center, head next door to jump on the pirate-themed Black Dragon Cruise. Watch fire-breathing entertainers as the canons fire warning shots just off the shores of Laguna Madre. Grab a bite to eat and an ice-cold drink as you cruise through the deep blue waters and recreate the fun parts of a swashbuckling pirate's life!
Spend a day simply kicking back and taking in the stunning scenery as you lounge on the beach. The kids can build an epic sand castle while you get out on the waves with a stand-up paddleboard. Rent a jet ski to spice things up a bit, or maybe claim your spot on a high-flying parasailing adventure.
Wake up early and make the quick drive to the shore to make it in time for your deep sea fishing trip. Let the experts guide you through the waters towards the prize fish. Whether you're heading out to try your hand at landing a trophy fish or maybe something fresh for tonight's dinner back at your vacation rental, you'll have an endless array of spots to explore.
If you're looking for a family-friendly destination that everyone can enjoy, take your group over to the fun-filled water attractions, carnival-style treats, and games waiting for you at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark. Set on the southern part of South Padre Island, you'll be able to float the day away on the lazy river or maybe push your limits as you fly through waterslide tunnels.
Come revel in long lazy days on the sun-soaked beaches and fun-filled excursions out on the sapphire-blue waters. Whether you're coming to unwind in the tranquility of the ocean or dive into a sea full of adventures, our vacation rentals in Laguna Vista will be waiting with open arms!
