South Padre Islands Mahi Nic's serves up some of the freshest eats and drinks dockside. Enjoy their signature Blackened Mahi-Mahi Sandwich, Mahi or Shrimp Tacos, or hand cut colossal crinkle fries with a burger stacked high. They even have quick snack if you have other plans like a boat cruise. The best part is feeling the breeze with a frozen drink as you enjoy the waterfront views.


Visit the Convention Center and enjoy a nice walk on the docks all the way to the South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center. There you can enjoy seeing different native birds, alligators, turtles, and much more. If walking the docks isn't enough, jump on a Dolphin Watch boat to say hello to these sweet friends as they swim alongside the boat.


The Adventure Park is located far down South Padre Island but it's well worth the time. Pick a beautiful more or evening to enjoy a horseback ride on the beach. The park also has other friendly animals to say hello to, ziplining, and watersports.
