Hammonasset State Park Beach

1288 Boston Post Road

A visit to Hammonasset Beach State Park, is more than just another day at the beach.  Connecticut's largest shoreline park offers over 2 miles of beach to enjoy swimming, strolling along the boardwalk, or just relaxing in the sun and surf.

Beautiful park. The stat did a great job with the new pathway they put in. You can walk or bike all the way from the beginning of the park to the end without having to worry about cars. One of the nicest places in CT in my opinion.

ok the beach and park itself is nice enough, you can read the other reviews about it BUT I AM HERE TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE OYSTER SHELLS. yeah just be careful of where you step when you go in the water because if you step on one of the many oyster shells that are everywhere in Long island sound you gonna get a mad boo boo. Here's a picture of me with a nasty gash after stepping on a shell, I felt like I was out of Jaws it was a lot of blood so be mindful.

I would advise against ever camping here. Quiet hours start somewhere around 7:30pm, and if you so much as cough or fart a state trooper will come over and berate and threaten you in a hostile and volatile manner. Expect to feel extremely unwelcome and borderline in danger. It is neither good for families nor independent adults. Definitely not worth the money in either case.

Hammonasset Beach has a variety of things to do! 3 different sections of the beach to choose from so it's a little spread out! Not to mention they are redoing all of the areas! Bird watching is amazing as well as any other wildlife seen there! A conservation center is always a plus to add to a beach day to learn about some of the wildlife living in the area, as well as getting up close and personal with a touch tank with a variety of different species of animal! Definitely worth a day trip!

Hammanasett is the best beach every year. It is relaxing and worth the ride. We encourage our children & friends to pack up and enjoy this wonderful piece of Ct.
