Explore Rhode Island Beaches

Clear ocean waters, cool breezes and bright sunshine

The state has numerous ocean beaches with thundering surf and miles of stunning vistas. Doze off listening to the waves, take time to build an amazing sand castle, stroll the sun-speckled sand beachcombing for shells, or cast a fishing rod into the open water. The more shielded beaches of Narragansett Bay feature “breakwater” barrier protection and may be more suitable for novice swimmers, as well as featuring a more varied, fluctuating surf. Welcome to Rhode Island—not just another day at the beach.
