Beach was not all that great. No amenities. Short beach in Stratford has all the amenities possible so that's where I ended my evening.

Came here on the recommendation of a family member...was a great visit! Quiet beach, nice view and water was great! As out of towners we did pay a$15 parking fee but it was worth it!

During the summer the Walnut Beach Association hosts live music every Sunday 4 - 7pm at the pavillion. Great fun! Each week is a different band. Billy Joel covers, 70s, 80s, swing, rock, disco.... Like a Box of Chocolates- you never know what you're going...More

This is an excellent beach for a few reasons: 1. It’s sandy, and quite nice sand by CT standards, 2. Lots of amenities, live music, beach volleyball, etc. 3. The 1+ mile boardwalk, which is a phenomenal place to walk the shore.

This is a nice beautiful beach area with pretty piers. If you're feeling really motivated you can walk from Walnut Beach to Charles Island/ Silver Sands State Park. It's a beautiful area!

This was a decent beach. It was dreary and a cold November day when we were there. In warmer weather, it might get a higher rating, but I have to give an honest evaluation of our experience. We also drove up the coast, and there...More

Love this beach. There is a large pavilion with live music every Sunday in the summer. Lots of benches along the walkway. Long pier for walking and fishing. Many fun activities for all ages

This beach is connected via a long boardwalk to the state beach, Silver Sands. This is a great place to bring children. Lots of sand bars at low tide, and there a several street vendors to get a quick bite or a cold drink.

The walk is about 30-45 minutes although I’ve never done it. To walk to Charles Island u have to be very cognizant of the tides as you could get stuck on the island till next tide change

Personally I liked Walnut Beach, but Silver Sands is nice too.
