Green Harbor

New London, Connecticut

Across from Green Harbor Park on Pequot Avenue, you will find this sandy beach. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer season and there are plenty of opportunities for swimming and sunbathing. It's also a great place for a picnic either with lunch brought from home or purchased from the concession stands. The beach offers great views of the Thames River.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
