Niantic's Hole in the Wall Beach is hidden beyond the railroad tracks. There is a daily admission fee but if you arrive early morning or late evening, the attendants are gone and you may enjoy the beach and boardwalk for free.

Niantic (East Lyme) boardwalk (2 Replies)
For anyone traveling to southeast Connecticut, here is a recent article from the local newspaper "The Day" describing the boardwalk along Niantic Bay and Long Island Sound in Niantic. The view is nicer when walking east to west (you see quaint coastal CT), than when walking west to east (you see the power plant).
