  • BEST BEACH IN NEWPORT!!! Although the majority of this beach is for private club members, there is a public side. Located right on the famous ocean avenue, gooseberry beach offers breath taking scenic views of both the mansions and ocean. Convenient snack bar is an added bonus!
  • I have only visited this beach once and on the day that I was there the water was thick with seaweed and for awhile jelly fish. I feel like this is not a consistent problem, but for the few days in the area we chose a different beach with less seaweed. On the upside there was plenty of parking, bathroom/changing facilities and a snack bar.
  • Beautiful views.
  • Nice little beach on a cove type setting. Easy parking - $20 on weekend comparable to easton beach. But cove setting with large rocks results in no waves. Ideal for small kids and to build sand castles. Has a small concession stand and restrooms/ changing rooms on the public portion of the beach.
  • One of the best beaches I've been too. I was there in the offseason, so not sure how crowded it gets, but the views, rocks, kayaks surroundings are incredible.
