Fodor's Expert Review Narragansett Town Beach
This crowded and lively beach is perfect for bodysurfing, sunbathing, people-watching, sandcastle making, crab hunting, and strolling its half-mile length. A sea wall (with free on-street parking) stretches along Ocean Road and attracts an eclectic crowd, including guitarists and motorcyclists. Covering approximately 19 acres, Narragansett Town Beach has a beautiful sandy beachfront, but is the only beach in the state that charges fees for both admission and parking. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (fee); showers; toilets. Best for: surfing; swimming; walking.
