I have been to several beaches, this is a nice family friendly beach. Everyone seemed to abide by the rules that were posted....basically no partying or foul language. Showers, gift shop, food, and bathrooms were easily accessible. For those traveling to the area, there is an $8 parking fee, and they close the beach at 5pm.

For the beaches in Galveston, this is one that I recommend that you visit. The bathroom and dressing room area is very convenient. Lifeguards on duty, beach chairs & umbrellas available for rent.

Stewart beach is always a clean beach with lots of sand for the kids to play. Beach area is protected from cars and you can bring your own chairs and umbrella or you can rent some there. Was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food we bought at the gift shop. They made fresh to order, sandwiches, burgers... More

This was an average beach. Not a lot of frills but how can you go wrong with a beach? Now the concession staff was less than friendly (borderline rude) but the beach itself was very nice.

We visited here in March 2016. We were with our two teenagers and our dog. The price to enter is $8 per vehicle. The parking lot is very large and right next to the beach, so no long treks back and forth. The beach is really nice and is very long. There is plenty of room for everyone and you're... More

We went on a very busy weekend. The line to get into the beach was slow and we had to pay. We also had to park on the sand, but it was doable. Once there, it was crowded on the beach. Lots of parties going on with music and beer. I actually had to break up a fight of two... More

We had a great day it was beautiful weather not too hot not too cold. As in past visits of my own child hood the beach is great but little dirty. But you can drive almost right up to the beach and pretty cheap for the the day $8.00. They have huge clean bathrooms and beach showers. Other than all... More

Absolutely disgusting! !!!!!!! This place had me gagging. The stench was beyond bearable. DO NOT TAKE SMALL CHILDREN. No dividers between urinals and every toilet was full of Poo. Needs serious attention. I would recommend they staff this place with someone to check facilities every half hour. Beach had trash strewn about. Such a disappointment!!!!.

This was our first trip to Galveston. I'd heard the beaches were dirty so I googled best beaches in Galveston and this one was suggested for families. We have a 3yr old so we didn't want to go to East Beach which was suggested as more of a party type beach. I was surprised that is cost $8 just to... More

This is a broad beach with extensive parking. There are showers, restrooms, and snacks. Even during spring break, there was plenty of room for walking, volleyball, and swimming. There's also a small dog park.
