Many people don’t realize why South Padre Island Real Estate is so hot, so here we go:
-We have upcoming SpaceX launches which are viewable to a degree from Saida
-Texas annual population growth is amongst the highest in the USA – meaning more people will want to see our beach and pay for a stay
-Texas has no state income tax – like Florida, a reason so many people want to retire here to stretch their fixed income further
-It is as far south as Fort Lauderdale, Florida, making it very tropical
-In good economic times or in a recession – fact is, driving is much cheaper than flying and that makes South Padre an affordable beach vacation.

The separate bedrooms afford more privacy for families of all ages too. The advantage of buying at a resort style complex like Saida is ease of use. Staying on the beach in easier.

College Spring Break on South Padre Island brought prominence to the Island in the 80’s but now is but a shadow of its former South Party Island image. Sure, we still have many bars like Longboards, BOBs, Driftwood, and Clayton’s Beach Bar, for great sunset cocktails and live music, but the party party atmosphere just doesn’t exist anymore. Family beach vacations are by far our new bread and butter.
Dining on the Island offers so many different options, including the new food truck area across from Sunchase. it is hard to choose where.
Here are some of our favorite South Padre Restaurants:
