“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Very well organised beach, as one would expect having to pay to enter. This took us by surprise being first day in States from the UK where we do not pay for beaches.We found that this was the norm in this part of the States after a few days. However, the beach was beautiful and the sand very clean. The sea or should I say Ocean was a delight to enter as it was a very hot day. Facilities were very clean. We were staying locally so cannot comment on the parking, there appeared to be plenty of space.

“Blue Ocean water!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

This beach must be the cleanest beach in the north east. The sand was soft and the ocean was full of beautiful green and blue colors.
I really enjoyed it and would go back again

“Beach ok”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Beach ok but facilities not great..there is a section middle of beach sectioned off for surfing and boogie boards which doesn't make alot of sense since swimmers on both sides are constantly going into the area and lifeguards getting irrate. Bring your own chairs, umbrellas as none for rent at beach.

“Excellent Sandy Beach”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

I visited Narragansett Town Beach on August 12 with a group of four young teens. Everyone had a great time and the kids had fun boogy boarding all day. The sand was clean and soft. The water was 72 degrees, clear, and no jelly fish in sight! The beach has a small section that is dedicated to surfing, so no worries about getting run over by surfers if you'd rather swim. The beach was quite crowded on a Friday, but we still had enough room to set up our sun shelter and chairs.

We brought food, but there is a snack bar with typical burger and fry fare. Most importantly, Del's Frozen Lemonade is available at the pavillion :-)

Parking was $10 in the south lot, but sometimes the lot is closed to those who don't have a season pass. The parking situation varies daily, sometimes hourly. In addition to a parking fee, there is a fee of $6.00 per person to use the beach.

I'm giving the beach four stars instead of five is because of the parking situation. The surf can be strong, so I would recommend Roger Wheeler State Beach for those who prefer more sedate waves. I would recommend Second Beach in Middletown to those who perfer a beach with a more natural setting.
