I go here with my mom whenever I see her in Newport. She likes this beach. I find it to be nice but sometimes no parking and a long walk to beach. Is ok if you are already there.

As a local, I find this beach to be my favorite for its quiet location, and clean sand. I like to walk along the shore in the late afternoon when the beach is mostly deserted. Due to its calm water, it's favored by those w/small...More
