Jacob’s Beach is 25 acres of immaculate beach and beach grounds. The beach offers a volleyball court, half basketball court, playground, and rents storage racks for kayaks and canoes. Beach sand has a heavy mix of crushed shells and pebbles until the water’s edge where the sand is mostly free of shells; there is a thin layer of seaweed at the water’s edge. The grade to the water is minimal with small waves or non-existent waves due to Long Island Sound.
