It's hard to not like a beach, but when you are expecting sand and get hard-pack dirt, it's a little bit of a disappointment. Fun to watch all the ships lined up on the horizon coming and going.

We utilized this pay to enter beach because of the availability of its facilities. There are bathrooms, food, and chairs/umbrellas available for purchase/rent.

This is the non alcohol beach. So it caters more towards families so it's filthy. They do rake and comb the beach on a regular basis but they don't keep up with it like east coast beaches do. Plus you get a beautiful view of the oil rigs on the horizon. Enjoy.

Visited Stewart beach the Tuesday after labor day. The water was awesome and the environment at the beach was great for families. Nice wide beach.

I shy away from Stewart Beach because it's mainly for families and do they EVER FLOCK here each year...for me personally, it's too crowded. I go to other "private" beaches, thanks.

This is a nice beach and if your handicapped you get in free and have a nice place to drive down and be on the beach in your car. There are plenty of free beaches as well.

Recommend renting an umbrella and chair combo, $35 for all day. Beats hauling to and from the car, as the lot is a walk through deep sand. Restrooms were clean, showers inside and outside available, convenient! Snowcone vendor walked around, food available within walking distance. Pay to park, $13/ weekends and $12/ weekdays. Beach was maintained, a little busy on... More

The beach itself is fine. Better than expected, actually. But overall a bit disappointing for a few reasons. First, they charge $15 to park, which is a pretty high access fee for what is essentially an unmaintained natural site. Second, we rented an umbrella and chairs, which were also steep at $30 for the day. Then was incredibly frustrated at... More
