Fodor's Review

With generally moderate surf, the 42-acre Scarborough State Beach has stunning views of where Narragansett Bay empties into the ocean. There's a concrete boardwalk with gazebos and an observation tower. A grassy section on the south end of the beach is popular for kite flying and picknicking. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (fee); showers; toilets. Best for: surfing; swimming; walking; windsurfing.
