USA, Connecticut – Best of Beaches I

Published: 15.11.2019
Even today we head to Connecticut, a beautiful state where the history of the United States was written. If you head here with the idea of relaxing by the sea, then we have a few tips for you to anchor.

The coastline of Connecticut is adjacent to the Long Island Sound, so the beaches are not washed by wild waves. Nevertheless, swimmers should pay attention to safety, as water can be quite dangerous in some areas.

Many of the beaches in Connecticut are part of state parks, but you will still have more than enough opportunities to stretch and swim. Parking fees are quite high, ranging from $ 10 to $ 65, depending on the day of the week and location. So which beaches are worth?

New London

First, we visit New London, where Ocean Beach Park is located, an ideal place for a family. A kilometer-long beach with so soft sand awaits you that you won't be able to get enough of your feet breaking into it. However, if the bathing season is not suitable, then you can go to the swimming pool.

You can get to Ocean Beach Park for free, but you have to pay for parking. Inside the park you can walk along the trails, have a picnic, have children enjoy the playground or water park, where they can shoot at each other from waterworks. In addition, there is a huge arcade game room with classic arcade games such as pinball or the American known skee-ball.

Local ice cream parlors and restaurants are definitely worth a visit. Boardwalk Stage hosts weekly events, such as magic shows and exhibitions.

We will also introduce you to the Hammonasset State Park, which is the largest in Connecticut. The local beach, which is mostly lined with a wooden promenade, stretches for three kilometers. When you get here, try to go to the Meigs Point Nature Center to see what is happening on the day or week in the area. Usually activities are organized for people of all ages. Day trips include nature trips, sea bird watching or learning to recognize the local flora.

Safari, canoeing or Nature Ninjas events are held every week to learn about conservation techniques and nature conservation. Access to the beach, Nature Center and the park itself is free. By the way, there are about 500 camping sites.
