Galille is a nice fishing village. We went down to watch the fishing boats come in along with the lobsterman come in with lobsters. Very interesting spot to go and visit

“Best beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I moved to RI from NY as a child. If you are looking for great place to bring the family Galilee is a special destination. Wheeler beach is the best beach in Narragansett! Trust skip the Town beach (overcrowded and overpriced for parking). The beach is protected which makes it ideal for children to frolic in the gentle waves. Families will enjoy seeing the fishing boats, and the BI Ferry coming too and fro. Everything from ice cream to fresh seafood are available to enjoy. What are you waiting for?

“Watch the fishing fleet and swim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Galilee is a great place to watch the fishing fleet and the Block Island ferry pass through a channel between their docks and the ocean. Beautiful ocean views, too. Fee for parking in season, free off season. Several restaurants (some offer free parking) with fresh fish and seafood.

“Galilee= Food,Views,Ocean,Shopping & Block Island Ferry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Great Place for both family, friends and romance....You'll have plenty of beach time, shopping time....lots of panoramic views as well as moped and bike rentals and a quick trip to Block Island or perhaps a whale tour.....I'm not going to say there's a lot to do....but, if you catch the Island Ferry....You'll find yourself in another world....Christopher Walkins (the actor) even has a summer home on Block Island otherwise known as "New Shoreham" Stay a night or two on the island....Awesome shops, ice cream, sight seeing....actually you'll have to experience it all including during the summer perhaps an outside concert up on the hill....Amazing....You need to try it at least once....

A real live new england fishing village. Go to a restaurant here and the catch of the day came from right across the street! Watched the block island ferry come steaming in as a bonus!
