Best beach in the Ocean State, hands down! Born and raised in RI and I promise you will not get better beach than this! The water is clear and perfect. If you are looking for beach and relaxation...look no more. Want a party? Head up one beach to Misquamicut....it never sleeps:)

I love this beach! Always clean, less crowded than others and a great way to spend the day! Waves are usually big and fun to play in too!

Beach is nice, but steep entry with rocks where it levels out. Breakers too much for little kids. Good kayaking nearby, but go at slack tide.

Struggled as to whether I should even "spilled the beans!" Born and raised in RI yet never experienced the simplicity of this beach. The water is crystal clear and the waves deliver an incredible embrace! My go to spot moving forward? Perfect for couples and families.

Parking wasn't too expensive for the day and the bathroom/changing area was clean. The beach was easy walking distance of the parking lot. Lifeguard was on duty and you could purchase food and ice cream right when you entered the beach. Beach was clean and waves not too big. Great place for families.

Been going to Charlestown Beach for 30 years. The bath facilities are new and improved, the lifeguards are fantastic and beach is beautifully maintained. The only drawback is the patch of rocks you have to walk over to get into the ocean. But that's mother nature for ya.

Very nice, calm beach. Relatively clean and guarded. Length of beach gives ample room for privacy. Sea bottom is very sandy so it's good for small kids. Plenty of cheap parking withing walking distance when the lines get long. Arrive really early on the holidays or weekends and stake out your territory. Plan on leaving around noon when the loud,...
