“A typical Long Island Sound beach”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is typical Long Island Sound Beach with rough, pebbly sand lined with broken shells. I go there about twice a year to swim, and several times a month to walk along the beach, or bicycle along the roadway. The beach is free to Milford taxpayers and only $5 for non-residents to park. Anyone can bike or walk there for free. The beach has a fishing pier, bathrooms (when they are open), a pavilion, a bocce court, set ups for volleyball during the summer, and a few picnic tables and grills. There is a boardwalk and road (closed to vehicles) linking Walnut Beach to Silver Sands.

“Don't jump from the pier”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

A nice clean beach with Sunday concert series during the summer. I believe it is one of the best beaches in Milford. It stinks that the vendors near by are not the best though. They knocked down the best places to make condos.
