Didn't use the beach, but the adjacent park provides a wonderful spot to see the New London Harbour Lighthouse and the New London Ledge Lighthouse as well as the high speed (40 mph) ferry from Block Island and the car ferries sailing across the Long Island Sound. No fee parking on a post-labour day September early afternoon.

Beach is very well maintained and the grounds and restaurant are just wonderful. Food is very inexpensive, staff is super friendly and the entire beach grounds are non-smoking, very nice.

Busy beach in the summer, parking rates apply mid June through Labor Day. If you go a lot, you can purchase a pass for the summer. Zberski house can be rented for small events. There is also a concession stand with the usual beach food. Life guards on duty all day. There's also a playground and basketball courts. Nice outing for a family.

This is for the locals:
This beach is so expensive, we all know this. I never visit during the day but you used to be able to drive in after 6, not have to pay a beach fee and just get a nice dinner by the water at the concession house. We just tried to do this and the new gate hours are 8am-8pm. It's very disappointing & I think a very poor move on their part. So many locals like to just go there for dinner and not pay the outrageous beach fee but we will be spending our money elsewhere now on the other sea food shacks near by. Sad they had to ruin something good.
