Beautiful venue for a wedding reception. Oddly, the tables and chairs we reserved were missing when we arrived. The crew came through 45 minutes before guests arrived. Whew! Gorgeous location but bring your own chairs.

The walk on the boardwalk, the pier and sitting on the beach was just what we needed to relax. It was a warm beautiful day midweek with only a few people enjoying the beach.

I live approximately a half mile from this beach, and are there all summer. Love the concert series, however the lot gets crowded in the summer. Not much they could do about the parking though.

Fabulous concert series every Sunday afternoon 4--7pm in the summer right at the beach. Listen and dance to the best Ct cover bands. Go early. Enjoy the beach and swimming. Then top off your day and weekend with free live music. You will love it!

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.

I visited in early September after dropping a child off at college and found free parking in addition to free entrance to the beach. It is a lovely beach.
