Waterford CT Town Beach
Here's a nice view of Waterford town beach taken from Harkness State Park.
It was kind of a foggy morning and no one was at the beach.
I couldn't get much closer from here without doing alot of walking.
Waterford beach is a really nice beach and the sand is deep and soft, sort of a whiteish color.
They also have a nice picnic area. See also adjoining Ocean Beach Park
When you park in the Waterford parking lot, you have to walk to the beach following a path. So don't take alot of stuff that is heavy.
Gabrielle emailed us with the following information about Waterford Town Beach. Thanks Gabrielle!
"There are lifeguards during the summer, every day. Almost everyone swims in the water, and there is little more than the wake of the ferries lapping up on shore. Because Waterford beach is protected from the ocean by both Long Island and Fisher's Island, there is nowhere for waves to come from.
There is a raft out in deeper water for people (mostly kids) to swim to and jump off of. The beaches usually open in mid June.
Take care and keep beaching!"
