South Padre Island is a town in Cameron County, Texas, United States. 

The town is located on Padre Island, a large barrier island along the Texas Gulf coast. South Padre Island, Texas' premier beach resort, is famous for the sub-tropical climate that makes it a perfect year-round holiday destination. Mild semi-arid weather means lots of sunny days, and while cool north winds may blow for a day or two in the winter months, the winds make for better deep-sea fishing. The town is really a holiday centre, and, in the winter, some of the  restaurants are closed. Sea-shell shops abound!
