One of two public beaches in Darien, Pear Tree Point is all beach (no park) but has what you might call a “kiddie beach” on the West side of the beach which makes it kind of nice for people with small children.
The “kiddie” beach faces the channel rather than the larger body of water which is Noroton Bay, so it is has the feeling of being a little cove, and is especially fun at low tide when waters are extra shallow and perfect for wading around and hunting for horseshoe crabs.
There’s a fun gazebo on top of a cool rock formation, a snack bar and bathrooms. There’s also a picnic area with grills which are available on a first come first-served basis BUT can also be reserved in advance. For more information on how to reserve a grill, click here.
