West Beach

West Beach is Westbrook’s largest public beach which extends the length of the parking lot and down to the second and furthest of the jetties. Popular with the local residents, the beach has convenient amenities and a pier. The beach sand is relatively debris free in comparison to many Connecticut beaches with minimal pebbles and shells until the water’s edge. The slope to the water is gradual with the water staying shallow for a moderate distance away from the shoreline; people often place chairs in the shallow water to cool down. Waves are small due to Long Island Sound.
