This launch gives access to Milford Harbor, The Gulf, Gulf Beach, Charles Island and LI Sound. The only drawback is that you have to carry your boat and gear down a cement staircase and then find on road parking. There is a small public launch down Shell Ave between two houses (easy to miss) if you'd rather drag it in the sand than carry it, but parking over there is tough. If you use this site, it's a one mile paddle to Charles Island, Silver Sands Beach or into Milford Harbor. As always with heavy water, check tides and weather conditions. At high tide, you can launch your boat not far from the staircase that leads to the beach. At low tide you'll have to carry/drag your boat a few hundred yards depending upon how low the tide is.
