“Beautiful views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This should definitely be on your list of to-dos during your trip to Block Island. There's a warning at the top of the steps that dictate the steep steps, but you see all the little kids and families do it. It's definitely steep, and the steps stop about 30-40 feet to the beach, and you end up climbing down the rocks with a piece of flimsy rope as your "handle". The view is worth it though. Lots of clay around the rocks and water, you end up giving yourself a natural spa treatment.

“Astounding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Be prepared to walk back up the stairs that lead down to the beach. Also read about the history of the Indians and the Bluffs...incredible.

“The Bluffs were unbelieveable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

It's hard to imagine that there are cliffs like that in Rhode Island. They look like something you'd expect to see on the coast of California.

“Best spot on the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Nothing beats in on the East COAST for spectacular scenery. A visit to the island would not be complete without seeing this. A reasonable walk from the ferry of maybe 45 minutes each way.

“Magical - Unreal - Serene - A MUST SEE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Wow, where to begin. Mohegan Bluffs is a strip of secluded beach with cliff on one side and the ocean on the other. The picturesque spot is magical and breathtaking, words cannot describe it properly. You MUST see this place if you visit block island! I recommend taking a blanket and either picnic or read a good book. It doesn't get much better than this place for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of things. A long winding staircase will take you most of the way down to the beach, but to go the full way down you must maneuver over some rocks (I wouldn't call it difficult but I wouldn't say it is easy either - I recommend sneakers to help!) Otherwise you can stop at the overlook when the stairs stop. My mother and I biked to Mohegan Bluffs from Old Harbor but you can drive, take a moped, or even walk (but the latter would take some time). If you decide to bike, you should know that you're going to have to bike uphill a lot. I am in decent physical shape and my legs got a bit tired nonetheless. My mother on the other hand had to walk some of the hills. The distance and effort are doable though and well worth it. I would also go so far as to say that this is the most difficult part of the island to bike. If you make it to mohegan bluffs from the direction of old harbor, the rest of the island will be less strenuous.
