This was a clean and quiet beach, worth the $8.00 dollars to get in, if you drive in and park. if you walk in, there is no entrance fee. I can not comment on the restrooms or snack shop as I didn't use them. At least they were available to use.

Stewart Beach is our favorite beach due to easy parking and beach access. Beach is clean of seaweed and trash. Chairs and umbrellas are available to rent. Lifeguards are on duty.

Beach was cleaned. Free access to those with handicap plates and access to drive onto the beach. No lifeguards or umbrella and chair rentals in this area. Which was fine with us. We bring our own. Did not check out the public showers or gift shop. Overall stay was just fine except you have probably 3 4 miles of beach... More

Our family of 4 (boys 8 & 12) really enjoyed this beach. It was clean and uncrowded. We rented an umbrella & 2 chairs for $35. We ate lunch at the snack bar - good grilled cheese and hot dog, ok bbq sandwich.

Perfect for us. With kids you want a clean, safe beach to play in. Has the lifeguards, beautiful water and lots of sand. What more could you want. Very family friendly. Could walk to a few food places. Cost was $8 for the day but that is for a one time entrance so we walked to get lunch. Bathrooms available.... More

Stewart Beach is pristine with plenty of beach area for all to share. There are no concessions, covered areas with restrooms, nor rentals for umbrellas and chairs. No hotels are in this area, only beach houses. We brought our own umbrella, chairs, and picnic for a long enjoyable day. Current was safe for swimming and splashing in the warm gulf... More

As soon as my friend stepped out of the car she stepped on a condom and a toothbrush.. The bathrooms where a mess. Just disgusting. The beach was dirty glass and plastic everywhere. The only plus was the lifeguard training that took place right next to us.

We were hesitant about going to a "Galveston beach" as it's known for not being very nice. BUT we had a great experience! Made a lot of fun memories with our family! Sand was great, the chair and umbrella rentals were nice (though they've significanly gone up on their prices - it's $35/day now vs. $20 from a few years... More
