This was my favorite beach in Westerly. Not as crowded as others (because parking is impossible and far from the beach). Shorebirds and dunes and just lovely, especially around sunset when there are fewer people and the sky colors up.

By late August, the crowds are small enough that there is plenty of room for you to stake out a spot on the beach (which is on the ocean side of the Point, with views that can't be beat). On the cove side, there is solitude, a different but equally great view, and a lively aquatic ecosystem including hermit crabs... More

This is a very nice sandy beach - and for a weekday mid August - which is not crowded at all. Plenty of space to find a nice spot not too far from the waterline. Pretty view across the water to the lighthouse and some nice houses. Plenty of kids in the water having fun. Water was warm and was... More

This place is the best kept secret! The beaches are beautiful and the sunsets are even better. A must see if you are in the area, parking can be a of a problem in season, but hang with it some place to park always opens up.

I live about 20 min north of Providence and my family and I are always looking for different things to do. After getting home from work on Friday night we decided to take a drive to Watch Hill and hang there for the evening as we'd never been, and after I read that it is voted one of the best... More

Get here early or you won't find parking! Nice walk and great waves for body surfing! Watch Hill can be seen from the beach. Truly beautiful!

No dogs allowed from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Pretty location to watch sunset or to cool off. Parking in summer months is very difficult. Best to visit off season
