With 32 miles of beaches, Galveston Island is an outstanding family beach destination. Each of Galveston’s seven beach parks has a different personality. Whether you want a festive beach with lots of services and amenities or an uncrowded natural beach, Galveston has it.
Seawall Urban Park is home to the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier (see below) and the longest continuous sidewalk in the U.S., which makes it great for biking, running or walking. Stewart Beach was named one of the 10 Best Beaches for Families by Family Vacation Critic in 2013.
