South Padre Island Birding And Nature Center, South Padre Island Reviews

  • A birders paradise. Great exhibits and a nice gift shop. What really makes this place is the boardwalks over the tidal marshy area of the Bayside of South Padre Island. Would go here every day if I lived here. During the winter months there are so many migratory birds. I added a few to my lifetime list.

  • We went to SPI on our honeymoon in October 2017. We're 25yrs old and we wanted a quiet, relaxing vacation. The Birding and Nature Center was one of the highlights of our trip! Feed the birds, see the crocodiles, go to the gift shop, go to the top of the center- do it all! We stayed for about 2hrs. It's beautiful.

  • Beautiful building and education experience regarding local birds and migration information. Pay through kiosk then receive wrist band to take trails. Well kept nature viewing.

  • Nice experience in bird seeing. The tour guide was knowledgeable. Kids would love the place. Can be covered in 1.5-2 hr

  • One of my favorite birding sites. Herons, shorebirds, ducks and roseate spoonbills make for nice variety in bird types. This is also a great place for sunset photography with a view across the bay towards Port Isabel.
