We spent a few evening there in July. The beach environment is good, especially if you bring kids there. There are a lot of playing areas and food is very good too.

Compo is a safe, nice and clean beach. In 2018, a good amount of improvements were done, and expect that 2019 will be an even better year for all residents and non-residents to enjoy this calm beach.

We stopped for a couple hours on a Sunday morning. This place was so quiet and tranquil. I would definitely return.

Such a calm beach with all the amenities. Every time feels like a full vacation....from relaxing on the pristine beach to grabbing lobster rolls and other treats at Joey's restaurant. For kids, the playground is not to be missed.

Combo is an amazing beach. Easy to get to, great food, lots of things for the kids, BUT unless you have a parking pass issues to Westport/Weston residents parking is is very expensive - $50 per car.

Westport is so fortunate to have wonderful recreational facilities. A nice beach, marina and golf course in the beach area. Enjoy.

No, you do not need a pass. The pass is only for parking at the beach, the town does not screen people going into the beach. While you won't be able to be driven into the center of the beach, there is a drop off zone right... More
