Quonochontaug Beach is one of the few remaining undeveloped, privately owned barrier beaches in Rhode Island. The Quonochontaug Beach Conservation Commission (QBCC), an umbrella organization of the Nopes Island Association, Weekapaug Fire District, Shelter Harbor Fire District, and Shady Harbor Fire District, manages the area. Swimming areas with lifeguards are restricted to property owners and require a pass. The QBCC allows the public to park at this site during specified times, primarily off-season, and to gain access to the beach and pond via well-marked sand trails. A pamphlet of regulations and guidelines for use of the site is available from the QBCC.
