This is by far the best beach on Aquidnek Island. It is in Middletown and is referred to as 2nd Beach by locals because it is second in a string of three beaches on the south side of the island. It take beautiful pictures as Saint George's School is in the background looking north.

Sachuest Beach is a people-packed playground in the summer and a pristine and serene retreat for walking during the winter.

Second Beach, also known as Sachuest Beach, has something for everyone! The western end of the beach is a great spot for surfers. The long area in the middle is the perfect spot to while away a summer day in the surf and the sun, or a great walk on the hard packed sand in the spring and the fall. The eastern end runs into National Wildlife property, and gets rocky. You are most likely to see sea birds here, it makes it interesting for those who don't want to just sit and read a book. One impressive thing here is that people are friendly and helpful, no need to fear for your stuff if you want to take a dip. No Honky Tonk here, just great family beach fun.,

I love the first corner of Sachuest Beach (surfer's end) to soak up calm scenery, watch surfers, and take a late afternoon swim. The long stretch of beach and two huge lots further down are awesome for an entire day of play with family and friends. Waves are gorgeous! ..(only occasional seaweed) ..lots of pretty sand and shore to dig in ..or walk along. I love to view the coastline and the landscapes across street (which are part of Norman Bird Sanctuary, and Sachuest Point Wildlife Preserve.

This is a nice New England style beach. You get some decent waves here too. It is a grea location to watch the sunset. If in the Newport area, make sure you check out Sachuest Beach.
