Nice shoreline beach, accessed without need for permit or cash. Great view of Charles Island and nice boardwalk. No permanent washrooms, just porta potties.

This is a more remote ocean front park. It only has port a pot restrooms. There is a nice boardwalk you can walk right beside the beach on. I don't think pets are allowed there. There were some picnic tables and a few benches.

We stopped by for a little walk on or visit through Milford. The parking was easy to get to from 95. We got a 2-3 mile walk in early on the boardwalk and beach. It's a very flat walk and easy. A great way to...More

Yes, you can see sunrise from Silver Sands. The only problem is you have to park on East Broadway and walk a short distance to Silver Sands. The Silver Sands parking lot doesn't open until 8 AM. You can also see sunrise... More
