Summer

Summer (Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend) attracts singles, couples, groups, and families from all over the U.S. and beyond who just want to relax on the beach and have a great time. 

This is a very consistent time of year with the weekends being especially crowded all over.  Traffic can get backed up for 3 miles + on Friday and Saturday with people trying to get to the beach.  The same goes for people leaving the beach on Sunday evening.



Weekend Traffic Information

Fridays

It is best to arrive to South Padre Island before 3:30 P.M. to avoid getting caught in the traffic jam on the causeway.  Rio Grande Valley locals will generally leave their homes right after the kids get out of school and head to the beach for the weekend.  The traffic jam will usually subside by 8:00 P.M.
