East Lyme, New London, Connecticut, USA East Lyme is a town in New London County, Connecticut, United States. East Lyme is located in southern New London County, west of Waterford and New London and east of Lyme. Long Island Sound is to the south.
The town consists primarily of two villages, Flanders and Niantic. It is common for the town of East Lyme to be erroneously called "Niantic", due to this side of town being the "beach" side which is popular with tourists and visitors in the summer months. Niantic's population doubles in the summer months for the beach season, and it has a much higher density than the more sparsely populated Flanders side of town, which is known for its apple orchards, the town's high school, and forest.
