Set on the shores of the Laguna Madre Bay in the south of Texas, Port Isabel is an interesting place with a rich history dating back to 1519. Recently named “Most Beautiful Town to Visit,” the destination offers travelers a variety of things to do from fun speedboat tours to fishing on the Gulf of Mexico to watching the dolphins play in their natural habitat. Another relaxing way to spend the day is to head to the Lighthouse Square Mercado and pop into the retail shops and restaurants for a while.
Find out about the area’s fascinating past at the Museums of Port Isabel, a collection of cultural gems including the Port Isabel Historical Museum, Treasures of the Gulf Museum, and the Port Isabel Lighthouse. Abandoned shipwrecks, artifacts from the Mexican-American War, and fish murals are all part of the experience. Thrill-seekers of all ages, plan for an adventure on the high seas on a Pirate Adventure Cruise aboard The Black Dragon ship, which features plenty of swashbuckling fun, food, drinks, and entertainment. For treasures of a different sort, the Port Isabel Antique and Flea Market located at Beulah Lee Park on Highway 100 is where to go on the first and third Sunday of each month from November through February and the first Sunday from March through October.
November to March is considered the most ideal time to go to Port Isabel because of the pleasant weather. Of course, summer is a bit hotter, but perfect for outdoor activities whether fishing and boating out on the water, parasailing or just walking around town.
