Not far from the family beach is East Beach on the tip of the island. It has a pavilion, playground, restrooms, showers, concessions… and alcohol is permitted and it is known for the festivals and live concerts.
We saw quite a few people at Stewart, but with no special events going on, we found we had a lot of space to ourselves at East Beach.
We were able to park right by the sand and make the short walk to the water.
At the beach, the kids dug and splashed for hours while I handed out water and reapplied sunscreen.
