Penfield Beach has 3.5 acres of beachfront real estate. The beach offers a playground area for kids, banquet facilities, on-site grills, and lockers to rent all within steps of the beach area. Sand has crushed shells and minimal debris until the water’s edge, where there is a band of shells left over from high-tide. The slope to the water is gradual, and the waves are small due to Long Island Sound.
