Added information about the Milford, CT area:
As you can see in the photos above, Silver Sands State Park in Milford has an island offshore.
This island is connected by a sand bar to the mainland at low tide. It is marked as dangerous to cross to the island, as the sand bar is covered in water when the tide comes in.
Silver Sands Beach is connected to the main beach in Milford by a boardwalk.
The stretch of beaches is a good mixture of sand, gravel, and rock, usually the best mix to find sea glass.
However, as you can see from the map below, Milford is in Long Island Sound, which pretty much excludes signficant wave action.
Because of the lack of much tumbling from waves, necessary to produce rounded and frosted sea glass, only a few very old pieces of sea glass are found.
Colorful shards abound, though, as seen above, and many people enjoy the search for beach glass treasures along the shores of Long Island Sound near Milford, Connecticut.
