On our first day at The Ocean House, we were given directions to Stonington Borough, and instructions to park at Stonington Point, to see the Old Stonington Lighthouse & Museum. That put us right at duBois Beach, a little bit of sand, at the Point’s end, and steps from the lighthouse. We found ample parking at duBois Beach, and spent time just wandering there, before heading up the street to the lighthouse, and its museum.

The drive to duBois Beach takes one down narrow Water St, where the last few blocks have two-way traffic. This was easy for us to navigate, as we were visiting before Memorial Day weekend, and early morning traffic was light. In the Summer, I think that there could well be traffic congestion. Also, on our visit, the parking area was virtually empty, and while it appeared ample, could get crowded, when the tourists of Summer arrive. As it was, we had the area to ourselves, except for a mother and daughter, on the small beach.

The actual beach area is rather small, but nice, and is located on an inlet from Block Island Sound, so while on the water, it is not on the Atlantic, per se. There is an open-sided shelter, and then the access from the parking lot. On the day of our visit, the waves in the Sound were light, and with the sunshine, the water looked inviting. We only did a stroll of the beach, between the rock jetties, and took in the surrounding area.

A great place to start our exploration of Stonington Borough from.

Lovely, small rocky point of land at the southern tip of Stonington. Nice small spot to ocean-gaze and relax.

Picturesque spot to park and look at the view. It was December when I was there and the wind was really brisk. Easy place to go to, though. You can stay in your car if it's a blustery day and look at the view.

I love this place. I visited twice today ! I came and parked for my tours and admired the scenery. I drove around and came back for sunset and walking the little beach. It was a great experience and relaxing end to the day.

Amazing views, stunning sunsets! If you want to enjoy an incredible sunset, this is the place. You can sit on the beach, or the seawall, or in your car in the parking on the point and take it all in. If you are in Stonington on a clear evening, you have to come here! We will definitely come here again!
