Crescent Beach is a small beach located near many summer rentals. Benches are placed on the outskirts of the beach to enjoy the views. The sand has minimal debris until the water’s edge where there is a mix of shells, rocks, and seaweed. The slope to the water is gradual, and the waves are small due to the Long Island Sound.
