Isla Blanca Park#3 in Best Things To Do in South Padre Island
Sitting on the southern edge of South Padre Island, Isla Blanca Park is home to some of the area's best beaches, not to mention fishing spots, playgrounds and boating facilities. Plus, it's the site of one of the most highly visited South Padre attractions: a huge statue of El Cristo de los Pescadores (Christ of the Fishermen). This is also a great spot to leave land behind and explore the sea on a kiteboard or a snorkeling excursion. Isla Blanca Park also features several lodging and dining options.
The spacious, pristine and clean beaches come highly recommended by recent travelers who say the entrance fee is well worth the cheap entry fee. Although, many warn that parking is a hassle and can be hard to find, especially in the summer when the area is in its peak season.
Isla Blanca Park is open to the public 24 hours a day for a small admission fee. If you are planning to try out some maritime activities, rentals will cost extra.
