Fodor's Expert Review East Beach

Charlestown Beach

This tranquil and unspoiled barrier beach spans 3 narrow miles of shoreline that fronts and separates Ninigret Pond from the ocean. It stands in stark contrast to Narragansett's bustling Scarborough Beach. Parking is limited and fills up quickly. Be careful when swimming: the ocean side is known for riptides. Amenities: lifeguards; parking (fee); toilets. Best for: solitude; swimming; walking.
