The beautiful beaches of South Padre Island are in the Texas tropics, where it's almost always warm. The sun and sea are a draw for people from all over the country. Today the island is premium resort property. The southern tip of the island is blanketed by beachfront condos and hotels. Farther north on the island are unspoiled beaches and dunes of white sand, which are traveled by horseback riders, dune buggies, and bicycles. There are only three roads running north and south and all three are excellent for cycling. Terrain: flat. Road: Park Rd. 100 has a wide shoulder. Lots of traffic near resort developments. Town roads have a wide land for public trolleys, but cars park in the lane from time to time.
