Literally asked Siri for the closets beach and we were taken to Walnut Beach. It’s definitely not what we’re used to. The water is definitely on the murky side. But it was nice experiencing the calm waves. And mostly the people, we meet so very...More

Beach was not all that great. No amenities. Short beach in Stratford has all the amenities possible so that's where I ended my evening.

This is an excellent beach for a few reasons: 1. It’s sandy, and quite nice sand by CT standards, 2. Lots of amenities, live music, beach volleyball, etc. 3. The 1+ mile boardwalk, which is a phenomenal place to walk the shore.

This is a nice beautiful beach area with pretty piers. If you're feeling really motivated you can walk from Walnut Beach to Charles Island/ Silver Sands State Park. It's a beautiful area!

This was a decent beach. It was dreary and a cold November day when we were there. In warmer weather, it might get a higher rating, but I have to give an honest evaluation of our experience. We also drove up the coast, and there...More

The walk is about 30-45 minutes although I’ve never done it. To walk to Charles Island u have to be very cognizant of the tides as you could get stuck on the island till next tide change

Personally I liked Walnut Beach, but Silver Sands is nice too.
