This beach is usually clean, worth buying the year entrance pass, to walk shore and let the kids play.

Texas does a lot of things really well, but one thing we DON'T do well are beaches. Stewart Beach had this great sign, but other than that? Nada. There was some sort of big building that appeared to be closed (actually, it looked condemned or just really, really REALLY tired). The beach just looked really sad. True, it was February,... More

I'm spoiled and do not favor Galveston Beaches. We were here in the winter, so hardly anyone here. It is close to stores and food. Does have some shells. Do not have to pay for parking in winter, but do the rest of the year.

It's unfortunate that I compare Galveston to California but let's be real Texas beaches are dirty. This location is a bit nicer than the East Beach but it still just a dirty Texas beach. This one's more family oriented and is more suitable during spring break than East Beach.

Even in December this is a must see! Almost across the street from the hotel it was to tempting not to go put our toes in the water and pick up sea shells!

It's a beach, not quite as wild and crazy as it once was I don't think. We tend to find less crowded areas down the seawall when we want to hang out on the beach in Galveston

When you want to get sand between your toe's and wash them off before leaving, this is the spot. Restrooms and services available on site. Your in walking or delivery distance to Mario's Seawall Italian & Pizzeria which makes it even more convenient to enjoy your day. There's a small charge to enter the beach but worth it.

Clean beach with restrooms and concessions just up the steps of building nearby . Outside showers available for those that just want a quick rinse as well as full showers up the stairs . No alcohol is permitted on this family beach . Umbrellas and chairs for rent or bring your own . A Walgreens across the street if you... More

This is one of Galveston's better beaches. It's also one of it's more busy beaches during tourist season. It's often well maintained as far as trash pick up, and seaweed cleanup.
