This 1 mile waterfront walkway offers inspiring views of Niantic Bay and Long Island Sound. An opening in the boardwalks provides a small beach to rest. It is a popular coastal access facility. To help you reach this site follow the brown and white Long Island Sound Access signs.
Niantic Bay Boardwalk stretches 1.1 miles along the waters of Long Island Sound, from Cini Park to Hole-in-the Wall beach. Free parking is available at either end. Come for a stroll, then check out the shops and restaurants in Niantic Village.
“We went after Labor Day, so the parking was free, and walked the full mile length of the boardwalk which runs between the sea and the Amtrak rail line. There were lots of seats all the way along the walk, an ideal place to sit and watch life walk past.”
