I keep going here. The Place is perfect for any age group. Perfect Jogging/Evening walk track, very nice Boardwalk which connects Silver Sand Beach to Walnut Beach. There is a small island as well which is connected to the Beach most of the times when water level goes low. I love that walk. Water is clean and not very deep.... More

We got our engagement photos taken here - a beautiful location. Love the beach, walking out to the island, the rebuilt boardwalk (no attractions, just a walking path through the beach/marsh). Definitely a must-do on a sunny day.

First off, Silver Sands is a great beach. They have a pier into the Island Sound, and have a boardwalk that is roughly a little more that an mile. The beach is clean for the most part, and the water is also clean. The boardwalk connects Silver Sands with Wlanut Beach, the local city beach. I have spent many relaxing... More

We come here a lot as it is closer to home and never as crowded as the beaches closer to Rhode Island and New London Beaches. It's a clean beach (w/ porta potty access ) a boardwalk to use to walk along the beaches in the area When the tide is low u can walk to nearby Charles Island. The... More

Beautiful beach for ct. Great boardwalk connecting to the city beach ,walnut beach. Great to walk anytime of year. Peaceful and pleasant. Also fun to walk out on the sandbar out to Charles island. Captain kid is said to have buried his treasure on it! Just be careful to come back before tide starts to come in. Great picnic area... More

Spent a nice relaxing day at the beach. The boardwalk was great! The park is clean and the water is as good as it can be for the long island sound.

Very nice place to take pictures... More

My brother was in town and wanted to put his feet into some sand and ocean.. so we took a quick drive to Silver Sands. It's easy to get to from Milford, and the park is free. The park was clean, the beach and water perfectly gorgeous. It was a weekday in September, so the park was busy but not... More

Easy to get through from the I95 and an excellent view of the Long Island Sound. We walked along the boardwalk across the wetlands and then parallel to the beach. The causeway to the island was underwater which was a shame but we went along about a mile and walked out onto a pier which allowed us to look back... More
