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.

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.

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.

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.

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