Beautiful boardwalk and beach!

Lovely, old-fashioned boardwalk and beach in the heart of Southeastern Connecticut. Even in the off season, it's delightful to stroll around here.

This is our favorite beach, but it seems it is not as good as before. We went on a weekday, it was $17 to park. The beach was not as clean as usual. The seagulls are not afraid of people, one swooped at my head and took pizza right out of my hand. It was funny, but a little scary.... More

Son loves the pool and the sand is very clean. Someone is constantly cleaning up. Nice to get ice cream right before we leave. Thanks

The website makes it look like the boardwalk is full of fun activities. I can understand paying one fee to get in, but come on every little thing is extra. Mini golf, the pool...it's crazy! The water was clean and warm. Overall it was mediocre. I wouldnt return however.

We stopped on our way home from Mystic. Great beach day with plenty to do. Well worth the mid-week parking fee. Beach and restrooms were clean. Sand was great. The surf was mild but the water was nice and deep at high tide. Would love to go back to play volley ball or enjoy the boardwalk/minigolf.

My family and I visited Ocean Beach Park on 8/9/2016 after a nearly 3 hour ride and had the fortune of great weather which made the trip worthwhile. I've visited OBP twice before in years prior while chaperoning graduating seniors from our local high school and felt this would be ideal for my three teenagers. My teens loved the beach... More

We had a fantastic Sunday at Ocean Beach Park. The soft, white sand was pristine and the beach front was very clean and beautiful. We also swam in the Olympic size swimming pool which was at least 87 degrees and beautifully maintained. We enjoyed a nice soft serve ice cream but passed on lunch in the snack bar as it... More

My husband and I went to this beach on a Monday. It is about 20 min from Mystic or Niantic. It is a large, very clean, pretty beach. Parking is easy, you pay by the car. $17 on the weekday, $23 on the w/e. It's a short, easy walk to the beach. We got there at 10a with very few... More

Clean, we'll maintained beach. Lacking showers but still ok spot. Amusements for the kids, small snack shop. Not too crowded during the week with attentive life guards. Would definitely recommended this beach.
