Just wondering if we are able to enjoy time on the beach in early Sept? Planning a trip to Mystic after the crowds of summer have gone, would still enjoy some salt air and sun.

I can see why anyone planning a dance event on the water might want to consider this venue...the outdoor pavilion was so nice and comfortable and the indoor evening space was likewise ideal for multiple bands playing back to back

Nice place to visit. Great view. Expensive to get into. If you need to leave and come back you have to pay to re-enter. If you want anything more than just going to the beach, bring your wallet. They have all kinds of activities. Kiddie...More

I did not observe anyone using skimboards but call the main number to find out. Inflatables are ok.
