Ransom Beach runs for 800 feet on the Long Island Sound in Bayville and is one the best North Shore beaches. It’s a simple beach with gentle waves, ideal for those looking to relax. Ransom Beach does not have a concession stand onsite but there are many small restaurants across the street where beach goers can stop in for pizza, Greek meals, or ice cream. Boaters can travel to Crab Shack in Connecticut, just 30 minutes across the Sound. On a clear day visitors will catch a clear, picturesque view of Connecticut across the water. The popular live concert series, Music Under the Stars, is held during the summer. Fishing is permitted, however, dogs are not. Entry to the beach is free but there is a parking fee though local residents can just walk in.
