A Day at the Stewart Beach, Galveston

Hot summer days are back in Texas. It’s time to plan summer trips and activities. We can not engage kids all day inside the four walls. In Houston during summer season afternoons are way too hot and you can not spend a day outside. As we were thinking of summer activities, suddenly my daughter said, “let’s go to the beach momma.” We were looking for a beach nearby and this one pulled on my Google search. By the time we were discussing our options.My daughter again came to me and said , “I have packed all my sand toys and I am ready.” Then we decided to go to the Stewart Beach, Galveston. As it was the only two-hour drive from our place to Galveston.

Stewart Beach Park

Stewart Beach is Galveston’s premier family beach park. It is located where the historic Broadway Avenue meets the Seawall, the Beach offers plenty of amenities for a day at the beach as well as regular supervision of highly trained lifeguards. The park is home to a pavilion, concessions, restrooms, showers, chair and umbrella rentals, beach volleyball courts, children’s playground and more. Alcohol is not permitted at Stewart Beach. It can get pricey with the umbrellas etc - but they have decent showers and parking is convenient. Really nice beach if you’re going with your kids and want easy beach access.

A Day on Beach

We really enjoyed the day at Stewart Beach. For a few dollars to park, you have a great beach with plenty of resources to make your visit comfortable such as restrooms, chairs, umbrellas, and food.  We reached around 5 pm and we had 2 hours to enjoy this beach, because beach closure time is 7 pm.  We did not rent chairs and umbrella as we have our own chairs for occasional rest but we mostly stayed in the water. The sand was soft and Pakhi had a blast playing in the sand and among the waves. There were a fair number of people there, but it didn’t feel overly crowded. We enjoyed swimming, making sand castles, and playing among the waves. The bathroom and shower area was clean.


You definitely going to feel relax and refresh after spending a day on the beach. Spending time by the ocean is a good escape from summer.
