Walnut Beach is conveniently located only steps away from parking in most areas. Crowded areas where the parking is more abundant is closer to the bathrooms and shaded gazebo. Parking away from the bathroom and gazebo will give a more relaxing beach experience but is further from the amenities. The sand is scattered with crushed shells mixed throughout with a heavy band of shells and pebbles near the water. The descent to the water is gradual, and the waves are small due to the Long Island Sound. During the summer months many events are held at the beach; see the link above for more information.
