Mohegan Bluffs, New Shoreham

(4.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Look far out on the Atlantic Ocean from the top of Mohegan Bluffs before heading down to dig your feet into the sand at the bottom. The 46 m (150 ft) cliffs remain a favorite scenic point on Block Island, and they take their name from a 16th-century battle in which Niantic Native Americans sent invading Mohegans plummeting to their death below. Today, a steep staircase of about 100 steps provides safer access to the beach. Plan to see Mohegan Bluffs and other attractions that appeal to you using our New Shoreham vacation builder.

  • Worth the hike down (and back up!) the many steps for beautiful views and a secluded, rocky beach. Recommended. And the nearby lighthouse is worth a stop on the way as well.

  • We rented scooters and visited this area. It is beautiful. Lots of steps, so us older folks just took our time. Worth the views!
