About South Padre Island Adventure Park, South Padre Island

The South Padre Island Adventure Park is 40 acres of land spanning from the Gulf of Mexico to the Laguna Madre Bay and it provides an unmatchable adventure filled experience on the beach. One can go horseback riding, rent ATVs, spend time with animals at their petting barn or even organise parties at the park.

Horseback riding along the beach and the water’s edge is one of the most memorable experiences one can have on South Padre Island. One would often witness a variety of shoreline birds and marine life while horseback riding along the water’s edge. One can choose from their many horseback riding packages like the morning special, afternoon special, sunset special and moon light special based on what time of the day they’d like to go horseback riding.

One can also race around on their user friendly ATVs on their private 6 acre ATV sand dune track. Safety gear and general instructions are provided at the venue. A typical session of ATV riding would last for 30 minutes but one could purchase a package to ride for longer if one wishes to.

The Petting Barn houses lots of birds, small animals that are safe to handle or be around, for children and adults(No snakes). Next to the petting barn are the corrals with a host of barnyard animals that entertain children and big people too. Next to the petting barn is the pony ride corral where children can take pony rides and play with them.

Also, the South Padre Island Adventure Park is a great venue to organise events like birthday parties, weddings or merely a barbeque night on the beach.

All in all, the South Padre Island Adventure Park is great place for children, families, adults and couples.

The activities’ schedule is changed throughout the year depending on the time of the year and the sunset timing. Please visit the website for a detailed schedule.

South Padre Island Adventure Park, South Padre Island Reviews

  • Excellent experience. Beautiful location, safe ride, patient and obedient horses, very very good staff. Could not have been better. My wife and I planned our trip from Dallas specifically around their sunset ride, not knowing what to expect. In my opinion it was spectacular and worth our time and money. Regarding some of the negative reviews, they're not worth very much. As with everything, if you go looking for problems you'll find something. But this place has a special feeling that would bring me back again, and you can't beat that.

  • The staff here is amazing! Everyone was friendly and helpful and bent over backwards to make the experience awesome! We got to pet and feed Texas Longhorns among plenty of other animals!! The AM horseback ride on the beach was beautiful, the guides were friendly and fun! Huge thumbs up from us all around! We WILL be going again next year!

  • I had not much expectations however, I have to say this was a very enjoyable time. The guides were very courteous, and took good care of the group. Horses are very well trained and they petty much know what they have to do.  I would definitely do this again sometime, if you’re wanting to do something different or try something new this is it.

  • Awesome experience! We were supposed to do the sunset ride but got to the island a bit late and they were kind enough to schedule us for the next morning. Staff are wonderful and really know their horses. They gave me one (I forgot it's name!) and they told me to watch out for him because he loved to be a pack leader. Sure enough, my horse always tried going to the front of the pack, but he was easy enough to control with a firm pull of the reins. After the horse ride, we enjoyed the ATV track they have. It was lots of fun riding in the dunes!

  • My first ever horseback riding was absolutely amazing! You guys made our 4.5 hours trip from san antonio worth it! Highly recommended! The two young ladies that guide us were amazing too, they were extremely nice and will do anything to make the horse ride as smooth as possible. We will be riding again the next time we're in the island! Thank You!
