The beaches of West Haven are a nice day trip or stop during a road trip. The beaches are relatively uncrowded but have sand and calm water. The beach has a nice boardwalk area that provides a nice long walk along the water. The beach has some nice piers jutting out from the sand, benches to relax and some nice reatursnta to grab a meal.

Captains is another West Haven favorite because it's right on the Long Island Sound. The restaurant is simple but it's the food and the views people come here for. Liz and I enjoy their outdoor Tiki bar for drinks and tasty appetizers. Captain's serves the typical seafood; clams, crab,lobster, shrimp and mussel dishes as well as prime rib. The...more
The Texas Roadhouse is our favorite place to eat in Milford. The restaurant itself is rather large with multiple seating areas and well as a bar. The theme of course is Texas and you can see the Texas signs and accents all over the place. As soon as you enter there is a meat counter on the left hand side. You are able to choose your particular...more
Jimmie's is a local favorite on the beach because of its water views and incredible food. Jimmie's is quite large with several dining areas both inside and out on the patio. The menu has a nice selection of meat, poultry, sandwiches, salads, appetizers and of course seafood. This popular place often gets crowded rather early so be prepared to wait...more
Jimie's has a nice outdoor bar area overlooking the beach. The bar is not just for drinks but serves a limited version of the restaurant menu. Liz and I often find ourselves here when we are waiting for a table or for a drink after a nice beach walk. The bar is usually filled with people hanging out with a drink and enjoying the beautiful weather....more

It is clearly posted along the beach that there is No Animals Allowed on the Beach. For the most part we see people complying with this rule but there are always a few "rule breakers" afoot. If the beach patrol see the violation they will ticket the owner of the animal.
All over the area are signs to keep the beaches clean. The town has provided ample trash cans as well as pet waste disposal bags. For the most part the beaches are clean and it is rare that we see trash strewn about. There are the occasional offenders that do not clean up after their pooch......damn disgusting.
Luggage and bags:
Most of our West Haven trips are day trips or an overnight stay in the area so a small overnight bag, backpack or small rollaboard will suffice.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In the summertime we like to use the WestHaven Beaches so swimsuits, towels and sunscreen are a must.
