we came here while a couple of the people in our group were horseback riding further down the beach. Not too crowded, nice waves, big sandy beach, plenty of shells, and lifeguards too. perfect for a family with a few younger kids who want it all.

Stewart Beach is a family friendly beach. There is admission however they have concession, restrooms, and showers available. Also they don't allow alcohol so it is ideal for children.

Ok the reviews are right - this is NOT a free beach - but to us it was worth it. Parking is centralized and easier than dragging your gear across the street or down the seawall. Beach area is way bigger and spread out - created great opportunities for my boys to build sandcastles, etc. Showers and area to cleanup... More

Like many other reviewers, I paid to go to this beach just for the showers. Other beaches are free! Upon entering I asked the guy at the gate what time the showers close. I was told 6:30. I went over to take a shower by 6:10, just in time, by 6:15 there was a woman yelling at everyone in the... More

Went there on Saturday moring. Beach itself is huge and has lots of umbrellas and chairs for rent - 35$ for an umbrella and two chairs. I think it is too much. Furthemore, tractors, police and other cars are passing all the time. Parking costs 13$ and water was not the nicest. Better than nothing but definitely not the best... More

Spacious beach with restrooms and a snack bar. They also had a huge blow up slide when we were there. $7/vehicle. We spent several days on this beach!

There were people everywhere! It was a good beach to go to if you don't mind the crowd. Had to pay for parking but didn't rent chairs or umbrellas. Everything was pretty high. Glad we came bit probably could have found something better.

This beach isn't bad at all, they have restrooms and showers and is reasonably clean, they have a little playground area like a pirate ship, our main goal was the ocean though. if you plan on going to pleasure pier you could save some money buy parking near pleasure pier and just walking right to the beach next to the...
