Williams Beach has 120 feet of beachfront, two baseball fields, two tennis courts, playground, pavilion, and park area. When the YMCA has beach camps, the general public has a designated area free of the camp. The sand is mixed with pebbles and shells with scattered bunches of seaweed from past high-tides. The slope to the water is gradual, and at the water’s edge bands of seaweed are thicker; waves are small due to Long Island Sound.
