  • Absolutely wonderful
  • Another Five Star day on East Beach. Great fishing day. Lots of activity for site-"sea"ers Plenty of parking still in spite of the crowd of vehicles...they're mostly on the beach. Caught site of a lone Seal near us close to shore. This is going to be a monthly trek for us this winter. Too wonderful to miss. Fresh air.
  • Beautiful New England beach with great bathrooms! The composting bathrooms (white buildings) are so clean and tidy. They also have standard port-a-potties that were very clean as well. The beach was lovely. Parking was INSANE! We arrived on a warm Saturday morning at 9am (parking opens at 8:30am) and it was already full! We had to park about a mile away and walk. When you can park there, the parking costs are under $15. They also have a life guard on duty for a portion of the beach.
  • I LOVE East beach. We've been going there for YEARS because it's just the best. NEVER overcrowded, always clean. Totally worth the 2 hour drive from my home and having to get up REALLY early in the morning
  • My favorite beach in all of RI. Small parking lot fills up fast on weekends and not many amenities. During the fall a great place for surf fishing or just taking a walk.
