“Just the place for lots of birds and fish/wildlife in the lagoon. Periodic shade protection much appreciated!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

To complete our visit to South Padre Island, we're going back here to walk the boardwalk one more time. Great value for the $$ paid. We really enjoyed everything we saw, but it's likely not the best for smaller children who won't appreciate just looking at the birds, fish, crabs and vegetation.

“Gem on the island”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Learned so much about birding in south Texas . Beautiful boardwalks.
Nicest gift shop on island. Take your binoculars and camera. One of a kind experience my whole family enjoyed.
