“Easy access from car to the sand”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Parking is very close to the beach which is convenient. It invites groups with lots of beach paraphernalia and children. Fairly crowed on hot summer days. Nice pier that goes from the beach side boardwalk into the Sound a hundred yards or so. People fish from the end of the pier and it has a nice panoramic view of the Sound and the shoreline.

The water depth here compared to Silver Sands has a much steeper slope. It's waist deep a few yard offshore, and over your head not much farther out. Nice place to swim and people are friendly.

Great place for a stay vacation. Walk out to Charles Island. Main reason I moved to Milford. The water and the view is beautiful.

“not a patch on UK beaches”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We visited in August and I don't know if the beach is usually as dirty as it was. We saw a lot of broken glass on the mile or so stretch that we walked. We were quite surprised as we were told this was a great beach to visit. The water quality was also poor, maybe we are just used to really good beaches as home here in the UK. I think if they cleaned the beach up it would be lovely and well worth a visit.

“Beautiful local beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Large beach area, very clean, with a pavilion with picnic tables. Also has fishing piers and a boardwalk that goes along the shoreline from Walnut Beach to Silver Sands State park. Ample parking, fee for nonresidents. Great view of Charles Island. Beautiful spot to see sunrises and sunsets. Lots of open area for kite flying.
