Waterford Beach Park

Waterford Beach Park is a clean and naturally beautiful beach. Limited amenities add to its appeal for those looking to avoid the loud, crowded beaches. This ¼ mile beach boasts a dune system and marshes and will require a short walk to access the beach. Sand has a light mixture of seaweed, crushed shells and pebbles near the water’s edge. The slope to the water is gradual, and the waves are small due to Long Island Sound. http://thedayimag.com/waterfordpr/summer17/html5/index.html?page=1&noflash
