My family went with intentions of visiting Kemah. We wanted to also go to the beach. Without having to make the additional drive, we found out about Sylan. The beach was small and nice. Not a fishy smell at all. They did have a lot of pebbles in the sand. We returned to our hotel drenched in rocks, but it... 更多
The beach has lifeguards, decent amenities, and was uncrowded on 4th of July weekend. No alcohol is allowed. There's plenty of grass if you need relief from sand, and showers are available. The only disappointment was that you need a pass to walk down the long pier next to the beach.
I was pleasantly surprised by the management of the beach. I went there on a Sunday morning expecting it to be like any other beach in the Gulf Area but it was way better.

The beach area is very very small and the water is not nice, even for the gulf. The sand has pebbles in it. However, it gives the kids a place to play and cool... 更多
Love going here when I want to go to the beach and do not want to drive. Very family friendly and I love that the beach is shallow for young kids. Lots of green space for picnics and two playgrounds. Will get busy on a pretty day, so get there early.
