My husband and I visited this beach with our oldest daughter and her youngest daughter one Sunday in October. In Houston it was very hot for us Norwegians this day, at the beach it was lovely. Fresh air from the Gulf, a little breeze, and good temperature in the water. The summer session was over. So it was not many... More

We spent everyday on Stewart Beach. It was clean and very little seaweed by the time we went Sept 11-15. Rental of chairs and umbrellas was pretty steep. Stop at Walmart and get yourself a beach chair for $20 and leave it behind at the hotel when your done! Beats $30/day! Water was warm and waves were fun. It would... More

I'm kind of a beach snob, but Stewart Beach was okay to catch a little sun while we were visiting the area. There is a lot of space, and the water is quite warm (once you hop or walk over the seaweed berm). There are showers and a changing area.

We were only staying a short time on a very hot day, so we saved the $8 parking fee and parked across the street and walked in. The water was warm and refreshing although sea weed was floating all over. Friendly beach patrol, clean and plentiful bathroom facilities and clean sand. Not paradise, but a nice, short stay! Lots of... More

nice that a truck scooped up the seaweed on the beach, however we had a 1 yr old and 4 yr old with us and wanted to put up a 1/2 tent to protect from the sun - was not allowed nor were tarps and told we had to take it down or move about 150 feet from the water... More

I don't know if it's the time of year we visited or what but there was sea weed everywhere! At some places along the sea wall the sea weed was so bad that it was to hard to get to the water. And forget pictures! I will say though that there were dozers at work trying to keep the sea... More

I have been to LOTS of beaches, Bermuda beaches being one. So I cannot compare to that! This beach had a MOUND of seaweed that was a foot high and 2-3 feet wide we had to step over to get to the water. And more inland before the beach starts, seriously HUGE mounds. Then farther down south, the smell was... More

There's a reason you have to pay $8 to use this beach. It's clean and lovely. You can walk barefoot and not worry about stepping on broken glass or beer bottle tops. There is a large expanse of nice, soft sand to put your beach towel on. You can walk over to the Beach Hut, the only bar on the... More

They clean the seaweed from this beach. We love that there is no alcohol on this beach and bathrooms are clean. Showers are a plus. Bring your own beach umbrella ( Walmart is down the street and they sell them for $20 ) renting is too expensive. This is a great beach for kids.

After reading some reviewsyou get turned off on going to the beach...but if you are laid back and relax you will enjoy your day. The seaweed is not as bad as it is made out to be just a little here and there not problem. Showers and RR are good. And $8 is not to bad to get in. I... More
