South Padre Island Nature and Birding Center

6801 Padre Boulevard
South Padre Island, TX 78597

956-243-8179

At the southern tip of the world’s longest barrier island, South Padre Island Birding & Nature Center is a spectacular introduction to a world-class destination, & a doorway to all this vibrant sand, sun, and surf hotspot has to offer. A slender thread of land between the shallow Laguna Madre and the rolling Gulf of Mexico, South Padre Island anchors the World Birding Center with nature adventures in every season.

The Land:

On its 50 acres near the convention center, the South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center presents a microcosm of the rich habitats that contribute to this very special place. Dune meadows, salt marsh and intertidal flats are all represented here, along with thickets of native shrubs and trees that are irresistible to migrating birds in their season.
