Altschuler Beach is part of an extensive boardwalk that is open 24 hours daily. Beaches from Bradley Point Park to Sandy Point are networked through a walkway which provides pedestrians, bicyclists, and roller-bladers a continuous waterfront urban “greenway.” Facing the Long Island Sound, this beach is mostly rock-free; there’s easy access to the water with only a small band of seaweed at the water’s edge. The waves are lake like, supporting fishing and bird watching; additionally Altschuler Beach has a pier and handicap access.
