“Beautiful Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014 NEW

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.

“Silver Sands State Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2014

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 visits at Walnut Beach, and Silver Sands. At low tide you can walk out on the tombolo to get to Charles Island. You have to plan your timing perfect, if you don't, you will be stuck until someone rescues you. The beach is a little rocky, but the beautiful sunrises, and sunsets make up for it. Silver Sands has sections taped off, because it is a bird sanctuary, like Charles Island.

“A nice place to enjoy the beach without the major crowds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

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 beach is alittle rocky but no worse than any other Ct beach. Just Afew blocks away is a little cafe called the Greek spot. It's worth the short walk to check it out

“Fun anytime”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

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 as we'll with wooden picnic tables.

“As good as a beach can be in CT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2014

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.
