Offering seemingly endless opportunities for exploring and general adventure, Silver Sands State Park features long stretches of beaches, sand dunes, salt marshes, and woods. The park was established following the 1955 hurricane that destroyed many local homes. Come for the swimming, hiking, and bird watching, and stay for the picnicking spots and long walks. The water is clear and warm, offering nature lovers a clear window into the world of seashells and schools of fish. A bird sanctuary makes up part of the park, and is the rumored home of Captain Kidd's buried treasure.

  • Great environment. Great place to relax and chill. Nice little walk. Beautiful beach. Love the ocean. Check it out!
  • I love it Because it is always clean, good energy, and long boardwalks There is also a nice view of a small island close by and a long rock wall you can walk down. Great place for a stroll. There are also meetings held there almost daily. Best Beach in Milford !
