Misquamicut State Beach is located in the very west of Rhode Island, just over the state line from New Hampshire. Not only is this one of the longest beaches in the state, it is the most popular, and for good reason.

Forming part of a sandy coastline that stretches off for miles in both directions, Misquamicut is a beach with something for everyone. Sitting on the edge of the little seaside town there are plenty of facilities close to hand. The beach itself also has a variety of amenities, including picnic tables, showers, and restrooms. You will also find lifeguards and a concession stand during the summer months, making it a great spot for families to spend the day.

Offering a wide range of activities from beachcombing and swimming to fishing and sometimes surfing, Misquamicut State beach is also home to a variety of wildlife, such as shorebirds, horseshoe crabs, and sea turtles.

If all this wasn’t enough, the beach is home to an impressive new pavilion featuring a bathhouse and host of other facilities.
