Fort Hale Park Beach is a small beach with limited amenities. This beach may not be an ideal “day” destination due to its rocky and grass-filled beach area. What this beach may be ideal for is a stop in to enjoy the view and park. The grade to the water is gradual with minimal waves due to Long Island Sound.
