The Cliff Walk runs behind the Mansions and borders the rocky Newport coast and sea. The views of the sea and surf as well as the Mansions from this rear perimeter perspective Is fascinating. Some areas of the Cliff Walk need repair so wear good walking shoes and be careful but enjoy the beauty and sea air.

This is a great way to see the backside of many of the mansions. It was an easy walk until you got about 2/3rds of the way through and then it got fun as you were able to walk over rocks and through tunnels and such to get to the far south end. Not for a cold windy day. Get... More

We set out to walk the cliff walk but didn't get far since the weather was a bit cold and windy. What we did see was beautiful with Mansions on one side and the ocean to the other. I would love to go back when it is warmer to walk more of it.

The Cliff Walk is a fantastic part of Newport's attraction - it is well laid out, has amazing views of both the sea and the houses it passes, as well as providing very good exercise!

The walk is gorgeous. The ocean speaks to you as it crashes on the rocks on slightly stormy days. Lovely.

The Cliff Walk gives visitors an opportunity to view a number of mansions from the ocean side so that you can see the views that residents enjoy. Paved path, easy to navigate on foot or wheels, though there is some undulations in the path (not completely flat).

You get to walk along Newport's beautiful waterfront mansions and experience incredible views of the cliffs and ocean. Great for a stroll in the morning or afternoon and a wonderful photo opportunity.
