Connecticut Beaches


Connecticut has 96 miles of coastline with West Haven having one of the longest stretches of beach in the state. Connecticut’s location on Long Island Sound makes it a great place for a day in the sun.



Jennings Beach charges for parking but has a playground for children, a bathhouse and food concession. The beach is just south of I-95 off Hwy. 1. The large sandy beach has great views of Long Island Sound. There is a large playground and Ash Creek Open Space is close for launching boats. There are a few places to eat including the Circle Diner, Lupita’s Mexican Restaurant or Giove’s Pizza Kitchen. Places to stay include the Radisson Hotel, The Lighthouse Inn Resort or Groton Inn & Suites for choices.


Long Beach is one of the longest barrier beaches in the state at a little more than a mile. Stroll the shoreline and enjoy the dunes and tidal wetlands where you may spot many species of waterfowl. Parking is available.
