This is a very short beach between an old motel and residential area, it's filled with locals who's here for a walk, picnic, or just taking their kayak out for a short trip.

Lovely little land tucked away in New England. Well kept sacred secret. Very small and quiet. Have to keep the tide changes in mind.

Stratford really stepped up their game here, turning this spot into a very impressive place to bring the family. The beaches are clean, with a food stand in the summer, pavilions, playgrounds, and not to mention a great 9 hole golf course!

This is a very clean, quiet beach. The long-island views are great and the people there was very friendly.

you will enjoy going to the beach and sharing the day with seagulls, people digging for worm, looking at oysters in 2feet deep water! Or just sitting and feeling the breeze while eating your lunch!

Crowded at times but a very nice facility with a lot to offer a family at any time of the year. Very well maintained for the past few years.

I love this beach, it is always well kept. Lots to do from tennis, volleyball, baseball to swimming, walking the beach, and sea shell picking.
