Nice Beach

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.

I visited a half dozen beaches after dropping my child off at Smith. Walnut Beach was the best with Norwalk being the worst. Ample parking. Nice boardwalk, great sand at Walnut (Silver Sands has more rocks and shells), easy to find parking.

We walked the beach at low tide and took advantage of the chance to walk the path to Charles island while the ridge of sand and rock was above water. It was a fun outing for our young grandkids on a sunny afternoon.

Gorgeous view of the water and nature! Beautifully maintained board walk. You can see tons of fish and turtles in the water. The subset was exceptional!
