Been coming to the island for decades but never came here. Now that ever beach is getting crowded with day trippers, this is perfect for those of us who spend real time here. Quiet, nice for families and walking. Pet friendly. No Lifeguard

Powdery sand, clear water and great waves for kids to boogie board. This is a little outside of the center of town but a great beach and not super crowded either

Great place is Mansion beach but it is hard to get there. Need a car and mopeds are discouraged from using Mansion Beach Road.

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.
