Misquamicut State Beach
Misquamicut has always enjoyed a summer population balanced by Westerly area locals and large influxes of Connecticut residents. One of the state's most popular beaches with over a half mile of beach front, there are also many local attractions for children. This modern pavilion includes many new features including rails, outside showers, and composting toilets. This beach does fill to capacity during sunny summer weekends.
A new bathing pavilion opened in 1999. This village-like structure includes a bathhouse building, a concession building that includes a gift shop and offices, a lifeguard tower and shade gazebos. Decking is made from a compound of wood and recycled plastic. A $700,000 renovation of the parking area was completed in the year 2000.
