#1 Westport Beach

Best (free) parking on the beach, albeit somewhat limited. Beautiful walking trails. An absolute pleasure to putt around the flower fields and beach coves.

Nice walking trails. Wonderful birding. Fresh water and ocean vistas. Not a dog friendly area. Can be accessed from both the northern parking area on to the southwest.

This is a magnificent spot. Green lawns, wildflowers, ocean, beach, pond, rocks. Check, check check. We didn't see much wild life other than birds. Also, it appears one can not swim at the beautiful beach, but I guess that's what Horseneck Beach up the road is for. There's even a cool little restaurant called Bayside right there for sustenance before... More

Beach is truly spectacular. Protected, long arc with fantastic ocean views. Stricly for walking or resting. No chairs, picnicking, or swimming allowed. Just the most... More

beautiful tranquil place to enjoy the ocean, pick shells, bird watch. There is a tidal pond area with various birds and when you make the loop you come out to the beach area. Definitely worth the trip. Spent a few hours there yesterday and the day before. Great place to unwind. There is no fee but they do have a... More

What a beautiful place to spend a few hours! Several walking trails to choose from, including one that goes along the beach. Well-kept and quiet. Definitely worth the trip!

Worth a couple of hours any time of year to have a nice exposure to tidal pond, barrier beach, rocky shore and sandy shore alike.
