Checking on the internet, apparently this has been a popular beach for many years.

Also, it appears that there were many shipwrecks over the years in the area.

Shipwrecks are sometimes a good source for wine, whiskey, and rum bottles!

BE AWARE, though, that apparently the beaches in all this area are private! See comments below.

Private beaches
by: BevAnonymous

I hate the fact that this beach is private. How is it possible that only residents get to enjoy the ocean? Didn't realize people could own the ocean. Cross Connecticut beaches off my places to visit, ever

Sea Glass near Groton, CT
by: Paula

There's a great little beach in Groton, CT.

It's just down the road from Eastern Point Beach across from a golf course.

I'm not sure it has a name but I've found 5-10 jewelry grade pcs per hour there.

It's wonderfully quaint and quiet.

Biked in
by: Mike and Dianne

Went with my girlfriend September 2012.

We biked in after parking the car on a side street.

Rode down the main roads on the east and west sides of Black Point.

Beach access is very tough and the places we were able to access didn't yield any sea glass.

I don't think there would even be much luck with kayak access.

There are better places to look in CT and if your a serious beach glass hunter you'll know what I'm talking about.

Unfortunately all the beaches in that area are private. We have a house in the next area over in Attawan Beach.

Even the town beach you have to have a sticker or proof of residency to even get in.

The old sea hags sit on the beach all summer and watch everything going on.

Is this beach a public access beach? Do not want to make the trip if it's private.

Tried going here accept the entire place is private, unless you know someone or renting a beach house here, good luck. Spend a awhile driving around trying to find somewhere and was kicked out numberous times : (

Thanks so much for sharing this info. I will be adding it to the beaches list so folks won't waste time!

Just a reminder that we rely on our viewers for the data on most beaches, so please add any useful is it private?!

If you know of another way in (or if you belong to the homeowners association there :-)), please post it here.

from the maps it looks like the majority of the area is private and residential. Where are there good places to park?
