Sound View Beach

88 Hartford Ave.
Old Lyme, CT 06371

Sound View Beach offers sunbathing and swimming with shops and places to eat within walking distance. Plan to arrive early since parking is limited.  A small public parking lot and time-limited on-street parking at this site limit the number of visitors to this beach. You can legally stroll along neighboring beaches as long as you remain on the wet sand area which is held by the State in "trust” for the public.
