We three sisters spent a few very relaxing late afternoon hours at West Beach. We came into the Park just to sit by the water's edge and read with the late sun. This beach is one of the amenities of the Rocky Neck campground. The New York-Boston Acela express train, as well as local Amtrak trains run RIGHT next to the beach on a raised track-bed and make for interesting diversions. The water is calm, so it's good for kids and just standing around in, the sand is feather soft and white, and the distant view of Niantic homes is picturesque. There are bathroom, shower, and concession facilities available before you get on to the beach. There are picture perfect spots on the roadside as you drive through the park. The camp sites seem spread well enough apart and are on fairly flat ground. For us three sisters, the best part was was the sun, sand, calm waters, and our books.
