“Bacteria beach”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

This beach is frequently closed due to high bacteria counts. I go there for Iggy's clam chowder or to dine at the Top of the Bay restaurant. The beach is dirty and littered with broken glass and other debris. Not a good place to bring small children or to even walk your dog!

“Up and coming”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I wouldn't recommend the actual beach unless you just want to take a nice stroll. The neighborhood is up and coming. Many, many years ago Oakland Beach was the spot. In the late 80's early 90's it was not a great place ti live or visit. Now, things are slowly changing. If you want easy access to the ocean, a place to hang and relax...grab a bite to each and take in the views, this is your place. People from all walks of life go there....

Dining choices offer a full range of prices and style. Many with a waterview. Popular and the traffic tells you so.

“A frequent stop when in Warwick”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Not nearly as nice as Conimicut or Warwick Park, but this is a good place to look at the ocean or a walk on the beach. Some nice restaurants are here too like Iggy's and Top of the Bay.
