The area is an area that you want to avoid. In the 1930's and 1940's it was summer shacks for people to have a place to go to escape the triple decker's (tenements) of Providence. If it the area still was like that it would be fine. Now that the houses are permanent housing, the area is a ghetto. The... More

Small but good for a short stay for the day if you are by an airport hotel - little too much seaweed

Lovely beach, great atmosphere during summer, always seems to be something going on. Car shows on Tues evenings. Beautiful sunset around 7/7.30pm in June. Fab playground for children. Great way to spend time.

Also, there were some great little restaurants right on the beach. The locals were all very friendly and helpful. There was a... More

I wish people that visited would pick up their trash! Oakland Beach is a beautiful place but not when people visit and make a mess!
