A lovely town beach on the Long Island Sound. there is a boardwalk which is marked for mileage walked, a large elevated fishing pier, nice sand and dunes- ample parking and tons of shells. We definitely were off season as we made a quick stop in mid April but it was a nice diversions and opportunity for some lovely scenery... More

I live approximately a half mile from this beach, and are there all summer. Love the concert series, however the lot gets crowded in the summer. Not much they could do about the parking though.

Fabulous concert series every Sunday afternoon 4--7pm in the summer right at the beach. Listen and dance to the best Ct cover bands. Go early. Enjoy the beach and swimming. Then top off your day and weekend with free live music. You will love it!

You can visit it in the winter too and it is very relaxing. In the summer it is mostly a family beach. It's fairly popular and you can walk to Silver Sands from it.

Walnut beach is a small community in Milford with a long stretch of beach attached to a boardwalk with a lovely pier. You can often find people wander to the shops to get some ice cream at the Creamery and wander down the beach looking for seaglass. There is a surf shop there that will take you out for lessons...

This beach is really pretty. Dogs aren't allowed on it because it's not safe for them. The seaweed can make them really sick if they eat it. Of course, the ocean is gorgeous. Incredible views here.

This beach is a nice beach. In my opinion one of the nicest in CT. The people are very friendly. The only down side is if you plan on staying the day you have to pay $15 to park unless you are a resident. There is street parking but it is only for two hours and the police do check.
