“Great swimming, nice waves, clean beach”

We found Charlestown Town Beach entirely by accident after finding no parking at the more well known beaches. This beach seemed to be used by mostly locals but we were treated just fine as guests. A very clean beach with a great view of Block Island on a clear day.

The area is clean with few rocks or broken shells. Nice stretch of soft sand. Great area for a walk in either direction. Lifeguards seem attentive and buoys mark off a swimming area to (mostly) keep out boat traffic. Lifeguards leave at 5pm. Dogs are not allowed but people bring them after hours. Too bad because even when you clean up the mess (and some people don't. ewww!) the bacteria can stay. But I guess that's probably true at any beach.

One of the better beaches to park at as far as room, but beach is small. The beach is maintained so it is relatively clean whenever you go.

This beach is lovely - it is a beautiful stretch of sand along the ocean in South County. Parking is limited so get there early. In the off-season months, it's nice to walk this beach because it's tourist-free and quiet.
