  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Nice little beach. $20 parking, calm waters - good for kids, nice views!
  • One of the the best beaches for quaintness. It's very European looking. No waves but the parking lot to the beach is very close, the sand is amazing and the water is always warm. You have a really nice 360 degree view of gorgeous homes and the snack bar is fantastic!
