Soundview Beach is a small community beach with limited parking. With only 100 feet of shoreline, the beach fills up quickly during the summer months. Convenient with the amenities located within walking distance; this beach is also a popular location for live bands and hanging out at the bars located there. The sand contains minimal crushed shells, rocks, and debris until the water’s edge where there is a large concentration from the tides. The slope to the water is gradual, and the waves are small due to the Long Island Sound. The beach draws a younger crowd. Coolers are restricted to 5 quarts maximum.
