Bringing the kiddos to the beach? Stewart Beach is a fantastic option. In fact, in 2013, the beach was named one of the “Top 10 Best Beaches for Families” by Family Vacation Critic. Trained lifeguards, a children’s playground, and an alcohol ban make it one of the best spots on the island for young ones.
