Texas has a few beautiful and popular islands along the coastline and when the hot weather comes around people usually hit up Galveston or South Padre. If you want to beat the heat but avoid the giant Texas crowds, there is an island that is just as beautiful and quietly tucked away right by San Antonio called Son's Island.
Son's Island looks like an amazing paradise and it's right here in Texas. The island has everything you need for a perfect vacation. You can swim in the river, rent out awesome daytime cabanas and even go glamping in their stunning cabins. You do need to make a reservation before going to the island, but the spot is so gorgeous, it is definitely worth it.
You can rent a cabana for an entire day from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. or for an entire evening from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Now you can rent one to stay in as part of their fun glamping experience. You can hang out all day and night, and check out time would be 10:30 a.m. the next day. Prices start at just $65 and work their way up to $145.
When on the island, you can swim and fish, as long as you bring your own gear, but there are also plenty of rentals to add extra fun to your stay. Some of the things you'll be able to rent include kayaks and paddleboards.
They also have a sand volleyball court where you are more than welcome to play a game or two. In the evening, the island has live music next to their cantina for people to dance, drink and have fun.
Unfortunately, there are no pets allowed on the island. The island also has a strict no glass rule, but you're more than welcome to bring your coolers and meats to grill.
We recommend planning your stay at least two weeks in advance but at times there are last minute openings for spontaneous adventures.
Son's Island is located at 110 Lee Street, Seguin, Texas 78155. For more information, you can visit their website here.
