East Haven Town Beach provides convenient amenities and activity options in a clean, well-kept beach area. Beach sand has minimal shells and pebbles until the water’s edge where there is an accumulation of pebbles and crushed shells from the soft tides. The waves are small due to the Long Island Sound and the entry to the water is gradual. The beach provides a gazebo and benches for seating, conveniently located steps away from the beach.
