Sound View Beach, Old Lyme
Sound View Beach, Old Lyme
Sound View Beach offers sunbathing and swimming with shops and places to eat within walking distance. Plan to arrive early since parking is limted. You can legally stroll along neighboring beaches as long as you remain on the wet sand area which is held by the State in "trust” for the public. A small public parking lot and time-limited on-street parking at this site limit the number of visitors to this beach.
