Gulf Beach is a conveniently located steps away from parking. The beach has a jetty and a pier along with a food vendor on-site. The sand is coarse with crushed shells and pebbles mixed throughout. Near the water’s edge a heavy band of rocks accompanies the crushed shells; the location on the beach determines the thickness of the band which can be difficult to walk on barefoot. The descent to the water is gradual, and waves are minimal due to the Long Island Sound.
