Road Trip | Hammonasset Beach State Park


If there is, one thing that I do not like is spending the summer in New York City. New York is too hot and humid, full of tourists and smelly streets. I would rather spend my summer days on the beach. Therefore, I have planned all my trips during the winter, to avoid high prices and sold out hotels.

My husband loves to go camping. He feels so well sleeping in the nature. In spite of the fact that I prefer to stay in a hotel room, I do not really mind to sleep in a tent. Actually, I had a cottage in a camping for several years.

Recently I went to Hammonasset Beach State Park in Masdison, Connecticut. It is about 1’30’’ from my home, in Queens, New York. Because it is in Long Island Sound, there are no waves. The weekend was very cloud, but the beach was so beautiful In addition, since I am a Brazilian, where the water is so warm, I felt the water was too cold. However, the beach was absolutely crowed. I hardly recommend if you want to go to this beach, enjoy it during the early morning hours.

The camping was not that good. The sites were small, without trees… forget natural shades. Few bathrooms and showers for the number of sites.


The beach was full of these pinkish flowers and those fruits. Also, I saw few wild rabbits, which my day happier.






The Hammonasset Beach State Park is located at 1288 Boston Post Rd, Madison, CT 06443. I booked my stay at ReseveAmerica.
