We went on a Wednesday when the surfers are there, thinking it would be fun to mix the beach styles. Surfers and skimboarders have a designated area where no one else is allowed, but I just swim or boogie board. So when my boyfriend wanted...More

We arrived the beach early in the morning. The water was cold. Not very crowded. Many sea gulls and great views of the ocean. Will go there again.

Summertime fun, sun, swimming, surfing or just people watching. Long fall, winter, and spring walks with your puppies, hubby or boyfriend, an absolutely beautiful beach!

We went to Narragansett Beach twice during our last trip to Rhode Island. The beach is gorgeous and the waves were amazing for our kids to learn how to body surf. The beach was super crowded, but very clean and we'll staffed. We look forward...More
