  • Excellent place to stay if you are lucky enough to visit Block Island by private boat. There are a large number of public and private mooring balls, a good anchorage area for those that like to hang on the hook. There are also an assortment of marinas if you prefer to stay dockside. Easy well bouyed entrance channel that makes coming and going a breeze.
  • Been going to block island for 50 years. One of the most beautiful places on the planet
  • Great place for clamming if you purchase a permit
  • Beautiful harbor, beautiful beaches, great restaurants. Shoreside showers are a challenge.
  • Best place in the world.
