  • Went off season just to walk, just spectacular and you can go for miles. Water was rough, so not good for weak swimmers.  more »
  • Have been going to this beach for at least 25 years. Never payed for parking, always went later in the day when everyone was leaving. Very long beach, is stony in the surf.  more »
  • Charlestown town beach is another fine example of nature at its best. The beach goes for miles and is a big attraction for families and couples alike. The surrounding are clean and the bath house well...  more »

  • This is definitely one of the nicer beaches in the state of Rhode Island. My family spent the week in Charlestown and the beach was probably the best part of the trip. It was never super crowded like Misquamicut, but the only downside is the fact that there are very few waves due to block island getting in the way
  • Definitely a hidden gem amongst RI beaches! Have been here are a couple of times and have never been crowded out like other beaches over near Westerly. Parking is your normal cost and I'd recommend parking up the road a little for half the cost since it's a hike to the beach either way.
  • So far, my favorite Rhode Island beach! Very clean with great waves and beautiful view.
  • Clear Water. Nice crowd.
  • Great for collecting beautiful rocks and sea glass. Surf and current are too strong for swimming, plus there's a drop off. There's a lot of sea weed and algae, which make fishing a bad idea. And there are some of the biting-est bugs in the state up on the dry sand. I'm glad we went for the sea glass, but won't go back. Blue Shutters is way better.
