I first visited South Litchfield Beach when I was four years old and in the 50+ years, I have seen the area grow and develop. But you know what remains the same? The laid back, hospitable vibe of the place. I love that there are only houses on the beachfront - no towering condos or fast food. Only dunes, beautiful... More

Litchfield Beach is very nice - a wide beach with good quality sand and not overcrowded, especially where we were at Litchfield (resort) by the Sea.

We come here every year with family members totaling about 12 people. Top not beach and accommodations at the Cambridge by the sea condos. Clean and extremely large units with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. Large balconies facing the ocean with Pools for each complex. Love this area.

Beach is wonderful and very clean!!! Best place to stay... It is a gated community and another part is not. I like that security checks on anyone entering the premises. If you don't have a pass t ok get in, we'll guess what sorry no entry....

The beach is clean and people were great. The only problem was that we had a jellyfish invasion but it was expected so late in august. Still we made the best of it. Been here earlier in the year and it was fantastic

This is a great beach to go to if you want to get away from the hustle bustle of more commercial beaches. It has miles of clean sand for walking and beautiful waves to romp in. Of course you always want to be mindful of riptides and keep an eye on the kiddies. The shelling was not great when we... More
