I’ll see if you think my pictures speak more eloquently than words. I enjoyed swimming in the sea and running along the warm sands in strong bright sunlight. Cycling around Narragansett is pleasant too. There are many fine coastal properties looking imperious and commanding like...More

I almost hesitate to tell people about it...I'd love to keep it a secret! It is a great beach if you are tired of the loud music and football games at other beaches. Clean, great waves, good snack shack, beautiful location! Worth the trip!

The sand is hard packed and the beach is usually full. We found the state park beaches ( driving distance ) to be bigger, more spread out, with fluffy sand to build and play in.

This is a well maintained beach with very nice facilities. It was a bit crowded when we went there and had a surprising number of surfers.

I was skeptical about paying $15 to park and $10/adult to get in... But it was worth it. Beautiful, clean beach with surprisingly warm water. The concession stand even has cold brew!

I have never seen such a beautiful sunset in my life! This was jaw droppingly beautiful last night. We came for the first time, and although there were a good amount of people there, and some parked with their lights on shining in everyone’s faces...More

After Labor Day, the beach is open to everyone. Parking is free as well. Great time to visit when all of the tourists have gone home.
