A little hole in the wall!!!

Love to walk the boardwalk in the fall. A great beach for little ones. Don't have to walk far to the water.

We stopped by this beach and while it is small, it was just what we were looking for. The sand is soft and white and the jetty was fun to walk on. They are doing construction in the area, so the weekend is the best time to use this beach.

Hole in the Wall Beach - Niantic, CT - 7/1/2015 This is a great beach. Small, local and intimate. It caters largely to a local crowd but there are also many out of towners that come here as Niantic's population just about doubles during Summer Season. I love it when I hear the bell of the Ice Cream Truck. I've... More

Beautiful views of the water. Generous sized park for the children nearby. Wonderful place to walk around, especially in the off season. Can get crowded rather quickly in the summer but the beach is worth it.

nice beach, only problem right now is you can't access it due to the construction. the boardwalk is being rebuilt still, due to Sandy. So for beach access go to the bay or McCooks.

A calm quiet beach, even in season! Perfect for relaxing after work day chaos. A nice boardwalk, and benches, and a small park area. Clean, clear water... a play area, and rocks... and two beaches!

The view from this is one of the best we have to offer. The sand is soft, the view is spectacular and the sea breeze is just amazing. watching the boats come and go under the bridge is relaxing as well as peaceful. walking the boardwalk is optional, but it is a wonderful walk with those who are exercising and...

The beach was nice, but parking was over twice what we thought it would be. Very quiet secluded beach but they allow you to come and go the whole day which is nice. It connects to Crescent beach which has a playground, and a floating raft ( parking lets you in to both beaches,
