Three Belles

Three Belles Marina Niantic

I had the pleasure of visiting Connecticut’s Three Belles Marina this past weekend and was thoroughly impressed. Nestled in the well protected Smith Cove, which is beyond Niantic Bay on Long Island Sound, Three Belles is one of the East Lyme area’s nicest marinas.

The facility’s location is convenient for southern New England boaters who want to be out on Long Island Sound quickly, yet keep their boat docked in the serene setting of a private cove.

The marina is perfect for families, with an in-ground pool, a deli and ship’s store, and plenty of picnic tables and grills in a pristine grassy area overlooking the docks. And since the marina is an authorized Hobie partner, they rent out a variety of kayaks and stand-up paddleboards as early as 8:00 am throughout the summer.


Three Belles is also a participating BoatUS marina, so your membership will save you money on both transient fees and fuel.
