Walnut Beach

Walnut Beach is a beach located in Milford, Connecticut. It was founded in 1999.

From Walnut Beach you can see the island known as Charles Island. People are restricted to go inside of the " Forest Area" but they can walk around the shore and they must come back before high tide. Charles Island was founded in 1614 by Adriaen Block. It was used for a summer home, a yacht club, an amusement park, a submarine chaser base during World War 1 and a reformatory.

A short walk away you will find a boardwalk that stretches about two miles long throughout Silver Sands beach.
