“Nice area to walk but currently closed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We look for different walks to do in the Winter Season and wish the closure of this refuge was better communicated on the web site, which we visited before heading there. It was still a nice walk on the beach in the direction that was not closed.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Was educational and fun as well as beautiful. Our family really enjoyed finding different animals in the inside display plus walking along the paths outside.

“Beauty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Rhode Island has some of the most beautiful habitats in the country, especially with seaside diversity. Visit Sachuest for a peaceful walk enjoying both field and sea.The loop trails are level, easy to follow and offer great birding and spectacular seaside view. And, use the visit to spend some time in the visitor center and find out more about what you can do to protect our amazing natural resources. Pair a visit here with your patronage of one of the many local restaurants that feature sustainable seafood and local farm-to-table fare and make your visit to Aquidneck Island one that truly gives back.

“Great place, but road is closed due to damage from Sandy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I enjoy walking and exploring within this refuge, but it is hard to get there right now since Sandy washed away the road. Not sure how long it will take to get fixed. Beautiful ocean view, interesting bird watching and a nice museum.

“Holds a special place in my heart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Sachueset Point National Wildlife Refuge holds a special place in my heart because this is where my husband proposed to me along the water. It is a beautiful and easy walk with lots of places to view the natural scenery.
