We had to kill time in Newport one morning waiting for our brunch reservation. It was a beautiful sunny day for October and not freezing yet. We drove to Easton's Beach and were thrilled to find an empty parking lot and lots of empty spaces facing the ocean surf. The sun at that time of day beats directly down on... More

Come November this beach is pretty deserted . One porta-loo open for business and that's it. A fairly boring beach but on a sunny day still nice to sit in the sun on a bench.

Beautiful spot and totally uncrowned in the off season. Had lunch while listening to the beautiful sounds of the ocean. Try a burrito from Diegos bodega in Middletown-delish!

Having grown up in New England and gone to beaches exclusively on Cape Cod and the South Shore of Boston, going to the Newport beaches this summer was a big disappointment. There seems to be a red tide/hydraulic current effect that keeps all the red seaweed in the cove of Easton's Bay, which makes swimming in the water very unpleasant... More

There are the most beautiful beaches where I live, so visiting this beach was somewhat disappointing as I am a bit spoiled. that being said, the sand has a blackish tint to it and the water had tons of red seaweed in it while we were there that makes you feel a bit uncomfortable entering the water. Other than that,... More

No matter you look for tranquility or mobility, this is the right place. I am amazed by the surfers in this cold autumn morning tides, and I've got a kick out of the enchanting sunsets...

If you are comparing this to the best beaches in the world, this doesn't make the cut. However, if you want a nice view, some good food, and a great view of Newport and the homes along the shore, this will do. The beach is very flat which is interesting since the waves from the Atlantic don't usually allow that.... More
