Ocean Beach is a lovely day trip and a nice Connecticut beach. While several beaches in CT are rocky and small, Ocean Beach has soft sand and some mild waves (there is a bit of undertow). They have a small boardwalk. Snack type food is available or you can bring in a picnic.
Some pros - they have a big clean pool, mini-golf, and some covered benches so you can enjoy the atmosphere without the sun.
Some cons - expensive parking, extra fees for the pool and mini-golf. The arcade is dark and dank and outdated. The gift shop has the minimum bare essentials.
Overall, the beach is quite nice and if you're going with a lot of people to spend a day, it's a good deal. If you're just going for a short visit or if you want to do activities, it could be quite expensive.
