East Shore - South

Groton, Connecticut

This sandy beach provides visitors access to Fisher Island Sound. It is located in the Groton Long Point Community, a popular tourist destination in the summer. The population almost quadruples in the summer months but retains a quiet peaceful atmosphere that is perfect for families with small children.

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.
