Tip: Get there early to avoid traffic. It is a fantastic beach, I love to walk from end to end and see all the different activities happening. This is one of my favorite beaches in Rhode Island.

Nice walk along the beach. Lots of sand and shells. Early morning walk was great to start the day before heading out to other attractions.

My son and I had been to 1st beach countless times, but I now know what we have been missing! Smooth sand, beautiful view of land and water, and big enough yet small enough! We will go back!

Could quite possibly be the best beach in RI... recommend getting there early as the parking lot fills up quickly.

Huge beach, kite surfers and lots of shells when we went in the Fall last year. Plenty of parking. Great place to take a long walk on the beach.

Yes. Pass the main gate, and pull up alongside the pass gate. Visitors can be dropped off there.

Dog friendly from October until the end of April! If you need a fun place for your dog between May and October, there is a wonderful dog park about 20 minutes away!!
