Things To Do


On The Beach: Walk, run, and hunt for shells for miles in either direction. Bring your shovel and build a sand sculpture. There is lots of room for volleyball, football, Frisbee, and any other game you can imagine. Inquire at our front desk about beach chairs and umbrellas rental.

On The Water: If your sporting preference involves something that floats, or flies, or both, it is available. South Padre Island is among the very best places in the world to learn to kite board and sail board. Instructors and equipment are readily available. If you want to sky dive, that too is available. You may rent a boat or Jet Ski. South Padre Island is also a world class fishing destination with a plethora of guides and trips to suit your desires. You may want to sail on a pirate ship, or take a dolphin watching cruise, or a cruise into the port of Port Isabel and see big ships being scrapped. How about scuba and snorkeling? Yup, also available.

On The Land: If you want to play all of the golf courses within one hour drive time, you’re going to need a longer vacation. If you are a birder you already know that South Padre Island and the surrounding area is a world class birding area. At the local wild life refuge you are likely to see an alligator, every imaginable bird, wild pigs and peccary, armadillos, roadrunners, and on and on. Have you ever seen a nilgai, sometimes called a “blue bull”? Have your binoculars and camera ready.

At Suntide III: Swim, SPA, sunbath, go to the exercise room, play tennis or basketball. Lots of folks like to get up a board game or card game in our beautiful lobby. BBQ at our picnic area. Read a book by the pool and relax a bit. Be sure to enjoy the balcony of your unit. BOOK NOW!
