Our timing was perfect as kids were still in school so we basically had this beautiful beach to ourselves. The good news is it has plenty of room for families.

During our stay at The Ocean House, we dined at their “sister property,” Weekapaug Inn, and used The Ocean House’s driver to get us to/from dinner. He took the route along Atlantic Ave, between the two resorts, and we caught a glimpse of Misquamicut Beach....More

Visited here last June for the first time, and found it to be a fun, very crowded nice beach. If it's a warm, sunny day; be prepared for heavy traffic getting here. Parking across the street is pricey! It's always great to experience new beaches!
