South Padre Island Warnings Or Dangers Tips by coloradochris

Driving on the dunes

Don't drive across the dunes at south padre it is illegal, yet there are beach points were you can drive across. You will need a 4 wheel drive if you are going to travel on the sand. It may look all pack along the waters edge be people always think that and they find just a little bit of loose sand and get stuck, i recomend that you stay close to the water and trave in a group or 2 incase one vehile get stuck or anything else, there arn't many people way out at the end of the island, happy travelin
