Running for 800 feet on the Long Island Sound in Bayville, Ransom Beach is one the best North Shore beaches.
It’s a simple beach with gentle waves, ideal for those looking to relax. Ransom Beach offers many small restaurants across the street where beach goers can stop in for pizza, Greek cuisine, or ice cream. Boaters can travel to Crab Shack in Connecticut, just 30 minutes via boat across the Sound and on a clear day visitors will catch a picturesque view of Connecticut across the water. The popular live concert series, Music Under the Stars, is held during the summer.
Fishing is permitted, however, dogs are not. Entry to the beach is free but there is a parking fee. Non resident fee applies
