  • Beaches along the Long Island Sound aren't nearly as good as Long Island's oceanfront south shore beaches or even Rhode Island's. But this one is special. First, the beach itself: This is about as gre...  more »
  • I never miss walking the beach when I am here visiting family! During "off season" (November) the beach is never crowded; great for some solitude and looking for seashells!  more »

  • I visit this park multiple times a season and it is always a pleasant experience. Silky soft sand, clean facilities, long stretch of ocean front, and no jelly fish! What more could you want? By far the nicest beach in Connecticut. Definitely a place to check out with your family or friends.
  • Had a wonderful time with my family. The parking is a little expensive, but well worth it. Beach is clean and maintained. I do wish there were more restrooms. I do suggest water shoes if going in the water because the first few feet going on is a little rocky.
  • Over priced! Dirty! No supervision at the pool. Cats roaming at night under boardwalk and in the min golf area!!! To obtain a Season pass you have over pay to then get a reimbursement, when all they need to do is charge at one of the 3 gates . If they organized the system it would be efficient. Rude gate staff except for the walk in gate attendant. Food prices are astronomical and looks like Boone cleans it up. The manager is rude doesn't let you get a word in edge wise and makes you fee as though your complaint is falling on deaf ears. The treatment of seniors and veterans is a huge disappointment. Poor all around
  • Love it here. Beautiful beach with the nicest sand. So much to do or not. Life guards are the best, ready for any emergency. Great day to be had.
  • Is beautiful and is a clean beach. Parking is $17.00 in weeks day ,$23.00 in weekend and $30.00 in Holliday. They have fireworks during the summer in specific day and Olympic pool for $8.00 per person. Is a good place to have fun with the family and friends, the have play ground for the kids If you go there I hope you enjoy is great
