South Padre Island // Safety and Warnings

Pay close attention to flag displays while on the beach. A red flag warns about dangerous currents and high surf, while a yellow one indicates relatively moderate and calm seas.

Blue flag
warns about venomous presence of marine life. There are no life guards available on the beaches so swimming is done at personal risk. Also, while walking barefooted on the beaches, pay attention to what is under your feet!

Several marine species which comes on shore with water currents remains buried under the sand and can inflict painful stings when stepped upon. If one is caught with glass containers on the beach, the fine is $200.

It is advisable to practice a little constraint while visiting local gift shops. Most of them offer almost the same things and shops which are relatively smaller always offer better deals than big ones.

Be prepared to pay taxes if you happen to cross the border while exploring the place. If you speed up, cops would immediately issue a ticket.
