Clean small beach. Not crowded. Family friendly. Life guard on duty. Clean restrooms nearby. Bonus foot shower outside restroom is nice to prevent extra sand in your car.

The beach is particularly well-suited for kids - no big waves, clean sand, and not crowded. And there's a beautiful boardwalk on one side and part on a bluff on the other. Easy walk to shops/restaurants in town.

This is a great beach for families! Short walk from parking to the beach, usually quiet, never crowded ,can walk to shops/resturants nearby. a great beach for an hour or all day. Not the best swimming or views.

This is a nice Beach and Park combo. The beach is nice and clean with a nice big park right there. There are benches overlooking beautiful Niantic Bay. It's a wonderful place to walk through or just sit and watch nature.

It's free if you park on the street and walk in. The east lyme parks and recreation sell parking passes.
