“Gorgeous”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

This is one of the most favorite beaches by many people in and out of the state. I took a nice walk recently to the Narrow River. It is so pleasant and picturesque. It is nice at any time of the year. And of course, right now, it is free. So, you can't beat that. It is so popular that it gets quite crowded during the Summer months so I take advantage of the peacefulness at this time of year.

“Narragansett Surf and Skate”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I have lived in Rhode Island all my life and have seen surf shops come and go. This is the only shop I will ever go to. Every time I visit I get treated like I am their only customer. Their knowledge of the products they sell, the lessons they give my kids are the best in the biz. Plus, they know all the local surf breaks unlike any other place in the state. One more thing, the owner is a Hall of Fame Surfer. Where else you gonna get that?

“The Surfing Mecca of the Northeast”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Surfers from all over the world travel to ride the great waves of the Narragansett Town Beach. Some of the most exciting surfing competitions ever held on the East Coast have taken place at this beach. The reason for the great surf is the angle of the beach, which can take just about any type of swell that the Atlantic Ocean offers. The clean beaches and easy parking access makes this the premier beach in the northeast for both sunbathers and surf lovers.

“Great Beach for Early Morning Stroll!”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

Get to the beach before 8:30 am so you don't have to pay an entrance fee. Start at the end nearest to the Tower and stroll all the way down to where the river meets the ocean. It is a wonderful walk - perfect for that romantic beach time together.

“Best beach in Rhode Island”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Beautiful sands, access to market place right across the street (incl package store), restaurants from $ to $$$$...

I've lived in RI most of my life, and now I live year-round a block away from Narragansett Beach. Was drawn here...
