This beach has a pond; not the ocean. It has a lifeguard in season and is great for the younger kids. There is also a great park attached to Ninigret so they can run off some energy. Great easy place to visit.

I really enjoy the ride to Ninigret, usually around the time of the Seafood Festival. Great food, the fireworks display was fantastic when we went even though it was starting to mist, the rain held off.
