Silver Sands Beach
Here's a beach picture of Silver Sands State Park located in Milford, CT.
It is a nice place to visit and spread your blanket for some sun and it's very scenic.
We love to view all the summer cottages too.
This picture below is a great view of Charles Island at high tide, and it can't be reached. You can walk to Charles Island at low tide, but don't stay on it too long or you'll be swimming back.
Charles Island is a bird sanctuary and is fenced off, No Trespassing, it says. It has a long history of use, and they even say it's haunted because nothing has ever prospered there. Read the history of Charles Island
Silver Sands State Park beach is great for walking and beachcombing. It's loaded with shells. When we moved to Connecticut, this was not a state park yet. Now, they have added observation telescopes, and a boardwalk.
The Milford Town Beach is another beach not too far away. Everyone pretty much goes there to swim because the sand is nicer.
