It takes a bit of work to get out there but the view is breathtaking. The beach and bluffs look untouched like howthey may have looked thousands of years ago. Cool place to go in the water but not if you need to bring blankets, coolers, little children etc b/c there are a million stairs!

The history is that the Mohegans crossed over and attacked the local Indian tribe, who pushed back, and in the process pushed some of them off of these cliffs to the rocks below. We went down the 164 or so steps (and then back up!) to the beach, which is rough and rock-strewn. There's a rope down there to pull... More

Was so special. We had the beach basically to ourselves and I felt like it was out of a movie. We will be back ...this was such an amazing moment in our lives. Hopefully those that live here don't become immune to it...

If you make the trip to Block Island then you must go to the Bluffs! The views are outstanding & so is the area around the exquisite SE Lighthouse. It is a must see, and good exercise too.

You absolutely MUST take the stairs down to the beach. The water color rivals that in the Caribbean. The cliffs are amazing to see from the beach looking up.

We went to Block Island just recently and this was one of our stops. The views from the top are amazing. The walk down quite nice. The beach is great but make sure to keep an eye on the tide. We got there during incoming tide and the water comes back faster than you think. I love it how people... More

I have been here before so I always come back here - this time it was with my son! View is awesome and I took many pics of this place. It seems smaller to me than before as do many of the spots I remember here

The bluffs were worth the visit,The views were awesome. Parking for cars is very limited. We went 2 days in a row. Sneakers make the return trip easier.

We rode around the island on our bikes and this was one of the first stops. Absolutely beautiful views. Lots of stairs but worthwhile!
