Mohegan Bluffs, New Shoreham

#1 of 21 in Beaches in Rhode Island
Geologic Formation Beach
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.
