Lobsterfest is an event organized by the Westport Rotary Club, once a year. It's held on Compo Beach. This year's event was today, on September 16. It's a family-friendly, traditional New England clambake, based around a very generous lobster dinner (two decent-sized lobsters per person,...More

Good spot to go with kids! Nice playground with Cafe. 4th of July Fireworks need their own special mention, since that is a must see from the beach.

Compo isn't the best beach in this part of Connecticut but it's very nice. Great views, lots of sand, and forgiving water makes it great for an outing. Like so much of this area, you need a parking permit from Memorial Day to Labor day...More

I've been enjoying running and bicycling along Compo Beach, which is well maintained (sand is raked, trash cans emptied daily). Ample parking for residents with beach stickers, or visitors who pay a daily fee.

Love going with the kids. A beautiful jetty, and willing lifeguards. Also, excellent food at the beaches' own restaurant. The Huge playground where the kids play when they get bored of swimming. We love to go several times a year.

I live a mile from this beach and most go after 5:00 - one of the only beaches I know that is as busy in the evening as during the day. Fun place to hang with friends and catch up over a glass of wine

Yes it is but it's much more populated when the weather is warmer. There are BBQs on the southern part of the beach which can be used as well.
