I really enjoy going to Stewart Beach every time we're in Galveston. I've read reviews stating it's a dirty beach; big newsflash- this is Texas. You're not going to find white sand or crystal clear water lol They charge $8 a car to get in (leaving and re-entering is not allowed). This past week that I went the beach was... More

We had a good time at this beach. There are some negative review points and those are valid if you were to visit Galveston often. But for the once in a while visitor this was a fun beach. It's known as the family beach so lots of kids which is fine. The rental cost for umbrellas/chairs is kinda pricey but... More

Been to nicer beaches. This beach was okay. Pretty. Don't like the call and pay parking on seawall. Go to west end beaches. Prettier and no pay parking.

Brad_Moore • a few seconds ago Information listed on Galveston.com is inaccurate. This past Saturday July 18 my friends who traveled to Galveston to meet me and my family were told that no personal shade/tents/tarps were allowed at the Stewart Beach. I had attempted for 3 days to get a hold of anyone at Steward Beach to confirm any details... More

We come here every summer, usually we get here early, but this Friday stop we arrived later around 330pm, Likes: to get in cost $8 which is not bad considering we like coming to this spot since it has the outside/inside showers and you can rent umbrellas and chairs. Also, Lifeguards all along, which is a must for us with... More

Pretty nice beach, but don't forget to take your own umbrella or be prepared to rent the $35 a day spot with umbrella and 2 chairs. I've seen so many people totally disappointed to show up with tents, shades, covers, shelters and told no. You pay $8 to come in and you don't get refunded. Great sea-shelling.

I've seen lots of reviews talking about how the facilities provided weren't superior. I really can't talk about those as I didn't go to the beach to take a shower...I went to the beach...to go to the beach. I didn't see any litter, there wasn't broken glass everywhere, there weren't people drinking (as there shouldn't have been, it's an alcohol... More

As a tourist paying 43 dollars for parking,two chairs and an umbrella,I expected more.The beech should have been raked clean of cigarette ends and litter.There was little water pressure in the shower area and no hooks to hang up your clothes.The pavilion needs a make over.The deck chair hire finishes at 17.30 hours which is too early.They need to cull...

We always come to this beach - I like that you can drive right up to where you are going to be for the day - its always clean and we have never had any type of problems
