CT: New Haven County-Milford- Silver Sands

Silver Sands is golden!

I love to travel the shoreline and Silver Sands is one of the best with 3/4 mile of all weather boardwalk skirting the sound and the Marsh.

The other unique aspect of Silver Sands is Charles Island seen below which is a bird sanctuary which you can reach at low tide based on a landbridge (tombolo). Although folks stress the importance of not hanging out and getting stuck there as a dangerous undertow is created when the tide starts to return.


Go on the tombolo!

Charles Island apparently includes ruins from early structures with a degree of eeriness looming. I have not taken this adventure yet. I’ll need a posse with me I think! However, with appropriate planning I have seen many enjoy the adventure!

I consistently find opportunities to play with the environment to take more unusual photos than on any other Connecticut shore.

Moon Rise

Please recognize that there is no biking on the Boardwalk but before and after it is part of my coastal ride. I just walk with it or lock it up when I reach Silver Sands. This park is 100% fee free and is open to the public year round. Please also note there is a gate that locks at dusk (yes I know this from experience when I took the moon rise above)
