dubois Beach


With a gentle surf, a shaded gazebo, an anchored dock and jetties for crabbing, it's easy to understand how duBois Beach made Boston Globe's top 20 best beaches to visit in New England. It's located at the southernmost tip of Water Street at Stonington Point, where you'll enjoy a magnificent view of Stonington Harbor, Fisher's Island Sound and Little Narragansett Bay.
