Cute park with on a beach. Parking was free. We only had about an hour or so and really wanted to just be on the beach. Beach is sand with a ton of broken shells and full shells. Beach is clean and peaceful.

Not great for swimming at low tide but very peaceful. I great place to walk or just telax. You can walk out to a small island or along the boardwalks.

This free state beach on the sound has a very nice boardwalk and pier. The beach, as many on the sound, gets its share of shells and sea weed. At low tides, you san walk the sand bar to Myst Island.

Fun beach to explore. Plenty of parking and a casual work to get to the beach. The grounds are kept well and there are lots of neat sea shells.
