Easton’s Beach is an urban beach uniting the east and west sides of Newport across the Easton Bay basin. Almost a mile long, Easton’s Beach is Rhode Island’s largest ocean beach, and consists of a broad expanse of off-white sand.

Also going by the name of First Beach and Newport Beach, Easton’s Beach provides a city centre spot for swimming, and is also possibly the closest spot to a city anywhere in the continental US where it’s possible to surf.

Day-trippers from the city will find facilities including restrooms and changing rooms, snack bar, lifeguard stations, public parking lot and rental cabanas. Additional attractions include a vintage carousel dating from the mid-twentieth century and the Save the Bay Exploration Center and Aquarium, located off Memorial Boulevard midway along Easton’s Beach.
