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

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
