Lovely long spit of land/beach along the coast, nice and close to Mystic. It's a good 1.3 mile walk one way easily. Street parking and some great shops and places to eat right there as well.

Go after Labor Day, plenty of parking. I took the dog here every day for a beautiful beach walk. Hardly a soul in sight. We loved it.

Not a rock or a pebble to step on, a lovely sandy beach as far as the eye can see. Clear water, clean beach. Good birding if you walk out towards the point.

The town sold the only parking areas to developers and now it is all private, for use only by the condo owners. Entrance attendants won't let you in. Forget going here. It's a lost cause.

The Naptree Point Beach is a beautiful stretch of white sandy beach with no facilities so it’s quiet. We took out dinghy in and enjoyed a perfect day at the beach with views and no crowds.

Have gone to Napatree numerous times with my companion. It can get crowded during the summer season, so get there early as it is a bit of a hike plus parking is limited and expensive. When you arrive you see why it can make for...More

A bit of a hike due to street parking and adjacent yacht club (walk thru parking lot and beach access up a hill), the beach offered all we were looking for: sand and waves. No facilities, so plan ahead. It's perfect for a walk and...More

The beach is lovely to take a nice walk on but the landscape has changed so much since the last big hurricane kind of heartbreaking. The town is still lovely and Quint and lots of nice little shops to walk around in

Cooler yes and cornhole is probably fine too although I don’t know for sure. But parking is pretty far away so it would be a long walk.
