Visit Son’s Island For A Tropical Paradise Hidden in Texas

If you’re seeking a tropical getaway, you won’t have to go too far if you live in Texas. A Hawaiian-themed island is hiding on a lake in Texas, and it’s sure to make you feel like you’ve traveled miles away, and you won’t even have to leave the Lone Star State.

Son’s Island at Lake Placid in Seguin, Texas, is just a short drive from the charming town of New Braunfels. The private Hawaiian hideaway is accessed via a wooden bridge and once you arrive, you will be transported to a 3.5-acre lakeside paradise with tiki-style cabanas. The island features water activities, outdoor adventures, and even live music and entertainment on the weekends during warmer months.

A total of 40 open-air cabanas are available for rent by the day. Each cabana rental includes entry for up to eight people, though up to 15 people can gather comfortably for the day. The cabanas have a picnic table, hammock, lounge chairs, barbecue pit, water, electricity, and a private dock for swimming and fishing. You can also bring your boat or waverunner.

On Son’s Island, there’s no shortage of fun, and it makes for a perfect “day-cation,” with activities for family and friends of all ages. Adventure seekers can rent kayaks, paddleboards, hyrobikes, and iFloats for fun on the water. Guests can also access plenty of significant swimming areas around the island and can dive in from the rope swing or waterslide. On land, you can play a game of horseshoes or volleyball, and there’s no better place to relax than by the water.
