I can't understand why this isn't the #1 attraction in Newport. Hands down this is my favorite thing to do there. As others have mentioned, the second half (and, in my opinion, best part) of the cliff walk is officially closed. If you are willing to make your way around the barriers it is possible to continue on. Most of the walk is intact, but there are sections of sidewalk and walkways that are washed away so you should have good shoes and be willing and able to climb boulders, etc.
