The view from the cliff walk is amazing. The open ocean on one side and gorgeous homes to the other. It's hard to choose a focal point on this walk.

Grab a sandwich at Peaceable Market, put on a windbreaker, and walk by the ocean. It's the best way to experience Newport. We walked from Thames St. (takes about 30 min each way).

We took our sons 3 & 9 on this walk, and it was breathtaking. We loved the walk, the 40 steps and the amazing view. Highly recommend.

It is a very easy level walk. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, houses, water. It was a beautiful day. The waves were incredibly high that day. We sat on a bench for almost an hour just watching surfers enjoy the waves. People are so friendly!

The setting is hard to beat if you're in the mood for a picturesque stroll. The path is paved and fenced off from the drop off for the majority of the trail. Lots of picture opportunities. No direct access to the mansions so if you're walking the path in between mansion tours be sure to plan your route based on... More

Wonderful scenery of the water and huge homes, nicely paved and easy to walk. Doing some renovations just past the Breakers so you can only safely go about one mile (April 2014).

A great perspective of the sea and the houses that look over it. So glad we did it, even on a chilly, rainy day.

After visiting the man made environment of the opulent mansions on Bellevue Ave.,we enjoyed and were rejuvenated by the powerful contact with nature that the Cliff Walk makes possible. The smell of the salt, the sight of waves dashing against the cliffs and the sun sparkling on the water are wonderful! We liked the fact that we could walk as... More

Newports' Cliff Walk is probably one of the most charming walking trails in the US. Having undergone a much needed restoration after Hurricane Sandy, it offers sites and scenes of a beautiful " ocean panorama" to one side, and a look at some of the most historic and huge mansions from our past, on the other. Bring your camera as... More
