CT: Fairfield County- Westport-Compo Beach

Shhh . . . want to know a secret?

Many of the beautiful shore beaches that are otherwise expensive to access for a non-resident is available to non-residents off season.

What fun is that off-season? Wait, did you really think that? Let me show you. . .

Activities: Beach, Walk, Bike, Sunset, Picnic

Compo Beach is a 29 acre park with a beach along the shore of Long Island Sound and borders the Saugatuck River.

The beach is open year round. A daily fee is charged to park from May 1 through Sept. 30. from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m.

During that in-season period I recommend you include Compo Beach as part of a bike tour around Westport- there’s no restriction here to enter on foot, just to park. I do plan on posting recommended biking routes which leverage the East Coast Greenway.

Be Present Gift of the Day

However, from Oct. 1 through March 30 leashed dogs are permitted and non-residents can park for free!

The parking lot faces the sunset. Now that’s a gift to be present
