Easy to bike or walk to: follow Spring street up & around; less than 5 minutes past the southeast lighthouse. Amazing views, sturdy boardwalk style staircase; it is very steep and they advise those with medical conditions to not attempt; but the views are spectacular!

The views will take your breath away. Just wear sneakers as the trip down can be tricky. We go every year and wouldn't miss it.

This is a beautiful spot on the island. There is an extensive stair case leading down to the beach but it is well worth the hike to see the Bluffs from below. Be careful at the bottom of the stairs as there is some hiking on some loose terrain from the end of the stairs to the beach.

We hiked around the interior of the Island to Mohegan Trail to the Bluffs. It was a beautiful hike. We should have paid more attention to the map and hiked all the way out to the water on the little trails.

Super view, dramatic beach. Rode bikes to parking lot and walked down the path to the overlook. We were rewarded with high drama! Best view on the Island!

The best was the 140 or so steps staircase leading down to sea level..the views were awesome. The fragility of the bluffs was interesting!

The bluffs are beautiful, but I wasn't all that impressed with the beach. It could have just been the day we went, but there were so many gnats and flies that we didn't want to stay long. The climb back up was quite tiring and not worth it considering that we didn't stay at the beach very long. I would... More

Travelled with several friends to Block Island for the day and this was at the top of our must do list. Easily accessible by bike or moped. Be careful though after the stairs stop-- not easily traversed by those with limited mobility ( elderly or very young). Rock formations along the beach are beautiful as are the actual Bluffs themselves.... More

I wouldn't recommend climbing down all the stairs if you're not in shape to make it back up! Go early to avoid the crowds during the summer....

This is the first time we have ever been to the bluffs and it was fantastic. The stairs were not so bad. I was a little nervous about climbing the rocks down to the beach but I did it with no problems. So worth the hike if you have never been.
