I visited the beach a few times (always with a group of people). For north east beach it is OK but nothing compare to a Caribbean beach or mediteranian. It is well organized with children play ground and the sand is mostly clean. Yet if you come by car, you won't be able to park unless you are a westport... More

Love going with the kids. A beautiful jetty, and willing lifeguards. Also, excellent food at the beaches' own restaurant. The Huge playground where the kids play when they get bored of swimming. We love to go several times a year.

I live a mile from this beach and most go after 5:00 - one of the only beaches I know that is as busy in the evening as during the day. Fun place to hang with friends and catch up over a glass of wine

I travel the world and enjoy taking pictures of the sun rising or setting. Yet, right here at home, we have the perfect location for both. Get there early in the morning or late in the afternoon and you will be guaranteed a beautiful show that changes every day! In addition, you have a beautiful beach. No wonder the British... More

We experienced Compo Beach on a frigid March day, just to say we visited Connecticut. It was part of a dare, so to speak, to add Connecticut to our family "visited this place" list. A cabbie took us from the train station to Compo Beach, weaving us along a course that introduced us to amazing homes of surely some big-time... More

What a great place to enjoy the beauty of the Long Island Sound and Westport. Whether your just looking to cool off on a hot day or worshiping the sun. Compo Beach has something for the entire family. Swim Playground, Volleyball, small boat launch, grills, picnic tables, what more could you want.

Nice semi-private town beach on Long Island Sound. Admission is charged except for town residents who purchase an annual pass. The views are spectacular, and the space expansive. Nice facilities. A nice and relaxing place to be.

While I could tell you about the crowds during the day. The lack of waves. The rocky sand. The snooty Westportians huddled around their beach blankets, judging others on the make of their umbrellas. I'll tell you about something else. Something that makes this beach truly wonderful. Just before the sunsets, head to the picnic tables at the far end... More
