Beach Locations

Rhode Island beaches come in many sizes and shapes. White sand ocean beaches cover much of the southern Rhode Island coast and dot the rest of the 400 miles of Rhode Island coastline with more than 100 public and private beaches to enjoy. By day, beaches are teeming with people building sandcastles, body surfing, searching for seashells and just soaking in the sun. In the evening, the low rumble of the surf crashing upon the shore offers a soothing backdrop for a romantic stroll.
