CITY PROFILE:

The City of South Padre Island is a unique, friendly seaside resort community that values its residents and tourists, preserves and protects the natural environment, and provides for quality sustainable growth and development that is highly diverse and responsive to changing economic conditions. The City is located on a 34-mile long sub-tropical Island, in Cameron County, on the Gulf Coast of Texas, 25 miles north of the Mexican Border. The island is a half-mile wide at its widest point and only the island’s southernmost 5 miles are developed. The City was incorporated in 1973 and is linked to the Texas mainland by Texas’ longest bridge. The 2.5 mile long, four-lane divided, tollfree Queen Isabella Causeway was completed in 1974. The City operates as a home rule law municipality pursuant to the laws of the State of Texas.

Tourism is the principal industry in the City, with an estimated 5.1 million visitors coming to the island annually. Water resources have been the dominant factor in the development of the City. The Gulf provides approximately 23 miles of beach front in Cameron County, approximately 5 miles of which is situated in the City. As noted, the island has become popular for vacationers and retirees.

The Gulf also provides a means for shipping cargo, for fishing interests (both commercial and sporting) and for boating. The body of water between Padre Island and the mainland is the Laguna Madre, providing bay front property for development. The inter-coastal waterway located in the Laguna Madre is maintained by the US Army Corps of Engineers as a water route for shipping.
