Part of Block Island's Crescent beach, Mansion beach has terrific waves. Perfect for body surfing, boogie boarding, or even renting a surf board for the day!

Mansion Beach offers fine sand, surf, space, dunes, bathrooms/shower, and is really perfect for families to relax and enjoy each other. It's not far from town, easy to bike or walk to. Very nice for an early morning walk.

Should not share this, because we like that this is not crowded , and we can enjoy the relaxation we deserve. Located at the site of an old mansion, some artifacts remain where you park.

The beach is beautiful and clean. I stayed a whole day there and I had lots of fun. Be sure to have your bike/ car/motorcycle around whenever you get hungry or thirsty to go to the closest restaurant or bar.

Mansion has been a great beach for Islanders since the "Mansion" burned in the late fifties. You can still see some of the stone walls as you park where the mansion used to be.
