South Padre Island is a coastal resort town on the Gulf of Mexico.
A federal reserve for birds and other area wildlife, the refuge encompasses 45,000 acres that are a one-of-a-kind blend of temperate, subtropical, coastal, and desert habitats. It's a unique combination that attracts a unique array of wildlife and makes the Laguna Atascosa famous around the world for its bird watching opportunities.
Another opportunity to walk among the wildlife can be found at the Laguna Madre Nature Trail. This 1,500-foot boardwalk overlooks four acres of natural wetlands. Visitors can study the dune systems and wildlife habitats and imagine the abundant wildlife that inhabited the area back then.
