“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The solitude of the winter. The beach has a wide open feel to it and is a perfect place to walk. One needs to dress warmly because the wind is generally strong off the ocean. It's also a great place to bird watch especially this time of year. If you have plenty of time, a walk around Sachuest Wildlife Preserve is a must. It's connected to Second Beach.

“Best beach for walking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This is one of my favorite beaches to walk and explore. Great place to find shells and sea glass. Beautiful views of the surrounding coastline and the bird sanctuary. This place is overcrowded during the summer season and parking is a challenge.

“Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We left Newport with breakfast from a donut shop and sat on the rocks sipping coffee and enjoying the view. Went for a walk on the beach - there was quite a bit seaweed that had washed up and some areas of the sand were very squishy and you sunk into the muck. We were not prepared for that, but it was a nice beach if you stayed a bit away from the water.

“Rather secluded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

There was nothing which stood out for us at Second Beach. If you want to avoid the big crowds and traffic associated with the larger beaches then this is the spot for you. Off the beaten path.

“Skip the Beach Crowds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Forget Misquamicutt. Second beach offers the same ocean, none of the crowds, cheaper parking and a ten minute drive to downtown Newport.
