Block island is a dream in winter. A quiet escape. The 1661 inn is very close to the ferry, close to the beach and to a farm. The island is perfect for hiking. Especially during the winter there is almost no traffic. The inn is charming, the rooms are clean, comfortable and decorated with taste. There is a lot to... More

We walked from Old Harbor which took about 30 minutes. It was a nice long walk and we wanted the exercise. (We're about 40 y.o. and exercise regularly). The views along the way were wonderful and it was nice to have the time to take it all in. We found it would have been too hilly for us to ride... More

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.

If you come to block island, it's an absolute must see! Watching the sunset was amazing. Wear shoes to climb stairs.

Block Island is beautiful, but getting around the island to see the beauty is not easy or cheap. So be prepared, know your physical limitations and make sure you stay hydrated. Mohegan bluffs involves climbing down AND back up over 100 steps on a steep wooden staircase built into the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Not easy, but what a view!!... More

Absolutely worth the trip!! Love the view from the top and the bottom. Lots of stairs, so make sure you take it easy.

Spent some time exploring the bluffs and beach for the first time and absolutely enjoyed our time there. The stairs leading down to the beach/base of the bluffs were quite a workout but offer stunning photo opportunities along the way! The beach is a bit rocky but still walkable. Some of the rocks are large and uniquely stacked allowing you... More

The scenery is so beautiful and the water has many shades of blue like the Caribbean! You can stand at the top of the steps and take pics with great views. If you go down by the beach it is very strenuous to walk down there but well worth it!

With all that is of interest on Block Island,RI,(BI) this is well worth the effort it takes to get down to the beach. The view is excellent and very reminiscent of the Ocean Road in Australia. Smaller in scale but definitely worth the time and effort. Pace yourself coming up. It is a good climb.

Lots of steps but well worth the view! There is a point where you can stop and enjoy the view or continue on the steps until you reach the beach. From there it is a hike to the edge of the water and many braver than I were enjoying exploring the beach.
