Hammonasset Beach has a variety of things to do! 3 different sections of the beach to choose from so it's a little spread out! Not to mention they are redoing all of the areas! Bird watching is amazing as well as any other wildlife seen there!
A conservation center is always a plus to add to a beach day to learn about some of the wildlife living in the area, as well as getting up close and personal with a touch tank with a variety of different species of animal! Definitely worth a day trip!

As far as state beaches and parks go this one is at the top especially with all the improvements they have done and are doing for the 2018 season:
Restrooms are new in two locations
Plenty of Parking everywhere along the mile or so of beach
Beaches well maintained and clean
Biking/walking paths are nice and wide
Boardwalk was redone after the storm
New Log Cabins in the camping area
New areas for picnics
Water is (relatively speaking) clean
Lifeguards are only in select popular locations so be forewarned
The "Southern" and "Middle" portions of the beach beach recently had riversand dumped on the beaches which in my opinion was a horrible decision. Gone is the beautiful sand. It's now mixed in and creates a "muddyish" texture in certain locations.
If you're planning a visit in the popular summer months it's best to arrive early because believe it or not, in 2017, they had to close the entrance because it was at Max capacity.

What a beautiful beach! I love the scenery, to walk along it, sit and relax, read there, watch the seagulls. The ocean is so beautiful, and Hammonasset is so beautiful.

We came here off season in the spring and loved the walk out to Meigs Point. Beautiful park.
