Port Isabel, Texas
Just west of the barrier island known as South Padre Island on Texas' southern Gulf Coast, Port Isabel (population 6,500) sits very close to the border with Mexico and came into being after the Mexican War of Independence in the early-1800s. Today the town is a very laid back place known for its excellent fishing (redfish, speckled trout, snook, tarpon and more). The annual Texas International Fishing Tournament is the state's biggest saltwater fishing competition.
The three Spanish ships that sank off the coast here in 1554 are commemorated in the Treasures of the Gulf Museum, and the iconic white lighthouse at the edge of town is the only Gulf Coast lighthouse open to the public. Touristy Lighthouse Square surrounding it is dotted with colorful, weathered dockside seafood and Tex-Mex eateries, oyster bars, shops and a couple of spas.
The Queen Isabella Causeway travels over the Laguna Madre (a unique hypersaline lagoon about four feet deep) to South Padre Island where 34 beautiful miles of windswept dunes, beaches and calm blue/green waters await.
