It was such a surprise! We did have to pay 8$ the first day to get in, the second time we went my mother in law got in for free due to being handicap and her tag was hanging up. We were able to park really close to showers. We took our canopy, grill, coolers and chairs and set up... More

We chose this beach because it had showers and a restroom but we did not know the showers outside and the bathrooms closed early.. We left at 8pm and drove to our hotel very sandy!! Ok beach. Hard sand not as much seaweed as the other beaches.

We spent the day at this beach. It got pricey. We paid $30 for an umbrella and two chairs for the day, $8 to park, $4 per sno cone, $30 for lunch, and $5 to rent a board. The beach itself was only OK. The sand was hard, but it was clean. The water was warm and the waves were... More

Day two in Galveston took us to Stewart Beach. It was busy that Tuesday afternoon. $8 to park and walk less than 50 yards to the water. Nice and clean sandy beachfront area was totally inviting. We didn't breakout the pop-up here either as the rules only allow the tents near the parking area (just beyond the parking poles), but... More

Today, my family of about 25 were ending our vacation and wanted to do some classic beach pictures. It literally took us 30 mins to snap the 100s of pictures we wanted. We were on our way out of town so we had a 7 car caravan. The staff was rude when we asked it paying for entry was necessary... More

The staff here is incredibly rude. You are not allowed to set up your own shade anywhere in the property - they make you pay for their umbrellas. Everything costs money here. A better bet is to find a spot along the seawall where you can take your own canopy, umbrella, etc. I really think that the manager over there... More

My son and I visited in March on our annual spring break trip and the beach was clean, the water reasonably clear and the shore line was clear of trash and seaweed. It was a fun visit. There is a charge to park and there is not in/out so make sure you have everything with you. Lots of young families... More

Unfortunately the seaweed on the beach was prolific but it did not slow down the grand kids who swam and built sand castles in front of the seawall.

There was allot of seaweed every where, but my family just wanted to get in the water. It really didn't bother us, but could see other people get their stuff and leave when they encountered the sea weed.
