  • Drove down to East Beach. We were t he only car and people there. It was an extremely clean beach. Nice area. 
  • The kids didn't like the waves as much here as at Stewart Beach but still enjoyed swimming. There were fewer people here than other spots we visited, but because a group was playing loud music it wasn...  read more »
  • This was a good isolated beach in Sept anyway. My family will definitely return. Beach was clean and the waves were great. 
  • This is the least crowded beach in Galveston and my preference by far. You can use a radio flyer wagon to haul an ice chest, chairs and umbrellas out near the water which I highly recommend versus carrying everything. The restrooms and snack bar are a bit far but they're better than a port-o-potty. If you're nice to them, the umbrella guys will let you borrow their electric screwdriver to drill into the sand for your umbrella. This helps get it down deep enough so it doesn't blow away. Otherwise, plan to bring your own because the wind will pick up and there's a lot of room for your umbrella to travel.
  • It's a pretty good beach. Not so crowded. But the water is very dense, you can't see anything in the water even with goggles on. There's quite good waves. You can even find quite some big snails on the beach if you are a knee deep in the water. I'd recommend it for a family recommendation
  • Nice place for family activity. Water is NOT blue and clear as Miami. But it's good enough for kids to have fan. Parking on weekend may be difficult.
  • Enjoyed it. Plenty of room on a Sunday. The parking was $15 cash only though. You can park a bit further and just walk to the beach if you rather not pay. I would go back.
  • Great beach. The beach was clean and it wasn't overpopulated. Parking was a bit expensive but it was worth it.
