Does anyone know Rhode Island South County beaches really well?

Jump to last reply

A few years ago, I stumbled across Blue Shutters beach in Charlestown. Gorgeous. When I went back a year later, I took a different turn, and ended up at a different beach (I think it was a state beach, because the parking was a little cheaper).
Now I see that there are something like 4 or 5 beaches in tiny Charlestown! What's the difference other than that 2 are town beaches, 2 are state . Blue Shutters had a small food stand and bathrooms and changing areas, I think the other one I was in only had portable bathrooms, no food.

Is any one less crowded with kids or teens? Better dunes? Calmer water or higher waves? Easier parking? Anything else?
Do you have foolproof directions to end up at the "good" beach ? Google Maps and Mapquest are a little fuzzy--and I see East Beach Rd., West Beach Road, Charlestown Beach Road, etc as access points.
Bonus question: Best place nearby to pick up sandwiches/salads/snacks/drinks to eat at the beach?
