Niantic is the near town with a movie theater and a few nice restaurants. Not a great beach but a convenient one for CT folks and families

Rocky Neck has something for everybody in the family: warm water, fine sand, picnic tables, crabbing, fishing, walks and hikes, wildlife, snack bar. Best beach on the sound for young children.

Always a fun place for a hike or a day with the family, if you enjoy being outdoors. Hike, Bike, fish, Orienteering course. Nature Watch.

I visit this beach every couple of years when I'm staying in the area. The beach is always clean and not much seaweed to be found. I LOVE the boardwalk that runs along the back of the beach. It makes it so easy to wheel your beach stuff until you find the spot you want, Then it's just a short trip on the sand to the water.

It is a bit odd that the trains go shooting by. You'll see the Acela that runs from Boston to NY. But the conductors toot the horns and the kids wave and it all lasts but a few seconds.

Lots of places to explore if you are tired of just sitting on the sand. Rocks to walk on, a pavilion to explore and trails to hike.

Great place to go for a run on the beach; surrounding park is beautiful too--easy access also; rarely crowded in the off season
