Oak Street Beach

Oak St.
West Haven, CT 06516


Oak Street Beach is a sandy beach with a pier. This site is ideal for fishing. Night lights installed on the pier make walking out on the pier for strolling or fishing more pleasant. This beach is the site of recorded music four nights a week during the summer season. West Haven provides 3.5 miles of public beach or Waterfront Park, each with its own amenities or environmental setting. Beaches from Bradley Point Park to Sandy Point are networked through a 1.7 mile walkway providing pedestrians, bicyclists and roller-bladers a continuous waterfront urban “greenway.” Views of Long Island Sound exist throughout most of the walkway. Oak Street Beach Activity Building is a multi-use activity building adjacent to Oak Street Beach. Most beach parking lots in West Haven close at 11:30 p.m. although the walkway is open 24 hours, every day. Some routes leading to this site are posted with the brown and white Long Island Sound Access sign.
