Globe names Rocky Neck, DuBois Beach among top beaches in New England
Rocky Neck State Park in East Lyme and DuBois Beach in Stonington borough earned spots on The Boston Globe's list of the top 20 beaches in New England.
The Globe review references Rocky Neck's "long white sands" and "crystal clear waters." The state park is also a site to observe "ospreys, cranes, and herons snatching fish and crabs amid the cattails," Patricia Harris and David Lyon write in the review.
"The campground's 160 sites offer choice of wooded or open settings," they said in part of the review.
The Globe calls DuBois Beach "a perfect spot for kids to enjoy gentle waves lapping on a sandy shore."
"The relatively shallow waters are good for small-fry swimming, while the big kids like jumping from the floating dock anchored offshore. Crabbing is allowed on the jetties but fishing along the compact sandy beach is banned," the Globe writes. "Picnic in the shady gazebo and look due west over the water to take in the sunset."
