“one of the best parks in ct”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

a great place to walk even if not beach weather. there is a great boardwalk right by the sea and views of charles island offshore. In the summer you can walk out to the island but be careful of the riptides over the bar.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Beautiful beach with family atmosphere. New boardwalk allows you to view marshes and more sea views. Great for swimming/ wading. If you are there at low tide you can walk the causeway to Charles Island.

“Great place to walk on a boardwalk”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Big parking lot with clear view of long island sound there is a boardwalk that run along the beach area about a mile long. with a parking lot at both ends. there are places to stop and sit along the way. Charles island is located off shore and at low tide the sand bar can be seen. But be careful do not walk out on the sand bar as the tide comes in very fast and you would not know were to walk. Very danger"s.

“An average beach”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

A nice beach, not too crowded, with a great view of Charles Island. At low tide, you can trek out to the island, but take care when the tide changes. People have been stranded out there. The tidal current is very swift and can sweep your feet out from under you. It's a fun hike, but please be careful.
The parking lot is a distance from the beach and you take a wooden walkway to get there. Parking is free and picnic lunches are allowed. A good way to spend some time with friends and family.
