Before you drive on over to South Padre Island stop here and climb the stairs of the Lighthouse. You get an Excellent View of the Island and the surrounding area. You can see why the Lighthouse was built here.

We were at South Padre for a month. We were around the lighthouse many times. There is scaffolding around the structure. One time I saw 2 men at work. What is the problem? Seems there is a major hang up! Never got to see it....More

Unfortunately the lighthouse is still closed and under construction. Very disappointing to drive up and see all the scaffolds.

Even though we had to line up it was worth the wait and the view was simply wonderful..i was trying to imagine what it would have been like when the view didnt have a causeway in it!.Recommended but it is a climb!

After we ate lunch at Los Cobos, we checked out this beautiful old lighthouse. Even with the construction work going on, it was still a thing of beauty. J
