Located at the end of one lane street near the old lighthouse museum, this small beach is an easy gathering place of kids and sunbathers. You can watch the boats go by.

A very nice small beach at the end of Water Street. While there are no services at this beach, it's close enough to walk to one of the Water St. restaurants for a take out order. Parking lot fills up earlier than later on sunny...More

The Dubois Beach is on the Long Island Sound. It has parking and a sandy beach with flat water waves. There is a lookout point where on a clear day you can see 3 states.

this is a small private beach but one can use it with a small fee. There is a parking lot and lifeguard... it is a great beach for kids as it is shallow and user friendly

We stopped in Stonington to look out at the view. We could see Fisher Island and I believe the islands off New York from this point. The beach was clean and invited, wish we spent more time. Because we loved the view and this quaint...More

Officially no, but many local people take their dogs there after hours or out of season. It's VERY important that you pick up after your dog if you do that.

This pretty little beach is open to the public during the day. There was a $10 per person fee this morning when we visited the beach.
