Located just off the coast of Corpus Christi, Padre Island is one of the premier beachside destinations in the state of Texas. With access to sparkling waters, scenic views, and all the sun one can handle, it’s a welcome respite for visitors and residents alike.

Real estate on Padre Island is varied and diverse, offering up homes of all sizes and styles—condos, lofts, townhomes, single-family houses and more. There’s even land available for new construction. One thing all Padre properties have in common, though? Beachfront views and sun for days.

The island boasts popular spots like the Padre Island National Seashore, Schlitterbahn Water Park, Bob Hall Pier, Baffin Bay, Corpus Christi Bay and Whitecap Beach. Corpus Christi’s Naval Air Station is just a quick drive West.

Students living on Padre Island attend schools in the Flour Bluff Independent School District, which was rated “recognized” by the Texas Education Agency. They attend Flour Bluff Primary School, Flour Bluff Elementary School, Flour Bluff Intermediate School, Flour Bluff Junior High School and Flour Bluff High School. There is also a Flour Bluff Early Childhood Center for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten.
