Alschuler Beach is accessible from an extensive boardwalk. Beach parking is available at the Savin Rock Conference Center when it is not in use. West Haven provides 3.5 miles of public beach or Waterfront Park, each with its own amenities or environmental setting. Beaches from Bradley Point Park to Sandy Point are networked through a 1.7 mile walkway providing pedestrians, bicyclists and roller-bladers a continuous waterfront urban “greenway.” Views of Long Island Sound exist throughout most of the walkway. Most beach parking lots in West Haven close at 11:30 p.m. although the walkway is open 24 hours, every day.
