A nice February beach day

Great place for photos the waves were kicking nicely .... It's a clean sandy beach ... With patches of perfectly tumbled stones.... I'd check it out in the summer for sure...

Long stretches of sandy beach to walk, run, relax or sleep. The ocean is different most days making the beach itself full of new topography and offerings of shells, sea glass, stones...and, of course, sand castles. Never disappointing.

Not too many people due to the parking lot size , but one of the most beautiful beaches in the state. Great for long walks and enjoy the waves here.

What can I say about Charlestown Beach? I can say so many wonderful things about it. One of the positive things the town finally did was put up bathrooms and changing rooms. They didn't have that many years ago so that's a plus. Enjoy folks!

Great beach, quieter than East Beach. Convenient bathhouse. Beach has large rocks instead of shells, but they are great for holding down towels!

This is one of my home town beach so I might a little biased. Great beach for walking, sitting or swimming, plenty of parking the beach goes on for a mile or so, but only a small part is under town control, to the west is a state beach. The beach itself is well maintained and plenty of life guards... More

Best beach in the Ocean State, hands down! Born and raised in RI and I promise you will not get better beach than this! The water is clear and perfect. If you are looking for beach and relaxation...look no more. Want a party? Head up one beach to Misquamicut....it never sleeps:)

I love this beach! Always clean, less crowded than others and a great way to spend the day! Waves are usually big and fun to play in too!

Beach is nice, but steep entry with rocks where it levels out. Breakers too much for little kids. Good kayaking nearby, but go at slack tide.
