Awful sand beach. Unable to walk due to huge amount of sea shells and rocks.
DO NOT EVER GO THERE!

CLEAN UP THESE SEA SHELLS AND ROCKS. You may get cuts in tour feet. Very painful to walk without hurting your feet. AVOID THAT BEACH!

Great beach

Fun place to visit. Fee for parking but free if you have a Penfield beach sticker issued by the town

Very nice beach for Fairfield residents
Aug 2019
Penfield beach is one of five town beaches in Fairfield. It has a new pavilion and very nice playground for children, built in honor of one of the Sandy Hook children. It can get very crowded on the weekends but I do like the fact that those with beach stickers get priority parking. It is our choice for a lazy summer day.

Nice Views

The beaches in this area of Connecticut offer nice views, but I wouldn't go into the water. I am a good swimmer, but I am selective when it comes to water cleanliness where I swim.

Great for families and kids. You need a beach sticker to park.

This is a great spot because it has food, bathrooms, a covered area to get out of the sun and lots of sand and water. If you don't live in Fairfield, you'll need to pay for parking between memorial day and labor day. Otherwise it's free the rest of the year.

Clean, and nice. Crowded in the summer but excellent place to go in the winter, fall or spring with your dog.

So much fun!
Nov 2018 • Family
I was visiting my Niece and her children and decided to go to Penfield beach in Fairfield. It was a cold November day but we had a great time playing at the playground, looking for shells and walking along the beach. The sun was shining and it was just so relaxing and peaceful there. We were so excited to see some young people riding their horses along the beach and since it was off season the community is able to bring their dogs for a walk on the beach too!
