This is our go to beach. On one end where the big climbing rocks are is where the surfer's do their thang. During the summer season there are usually boards to rent and lessons to take. For swimmer's only go to the opposite end of the beach, it is less crowded and often has less seaweed. There is usually a... More

Second beach is a long broad beautiful beach with surfing possible on one end. It is packed in the summer but winter beach walks on an empty beach are very relaxing.

Liked the broad expanse of beach for a good walk. Convenient and plentiful parking. Didn't 'dislike' anything.

We walked along the shore although it was in November not December. It's a great beach to go to in the summer. It does have a fee ( I believe to park & enter) but there was no fee in the colder months we parked & just walked along the beach. It's beautiful & pristine. In the summer this beach... More

The best part of going off season is the free parking and lack of crowds. I believe it costs $20 per car on weekends during the summer. The beach is great for walking and your dogs are welcomed this time of year. The beach is still clean and you can get a nice long walk in with beautiful scenic views.... More

Well, just tow hours from Boston, Newport offers the Mansion tours, national sailing events, many restaurants and a beautiful coastal setting. Have been here a few times but 1st time in the fall. Came to watch friends run the Newport Marathon and couldn't have asked for a prettier course or better day. Most of the course hugs the coastline na... More

When we were there (mid-september), the bathrooms and everythng else was locked up and boarded up. There was a port-a-john. Pretty place, not crowded in September.

We always try to hit Sachuest (Second ) Beach a couple of times during our annual RI vacation. We come here after Labor Day when it's not too crowded, parking is free and the water is still quite warm ( not numbingly cold like Maine! ). It is a great place for walking, snoozing and reading a good book. This... More

This beach has everything for an active person! First of all, it is long, so you can jog all you want, David Hasslehoff style. The water is sometimes infested with red seaweed (not red tide) but it usually does not span the entire beach. Secondly, it is warm water during the summer, well, warm for New England. Thirdly, it has... More
