Fodor's Expert Review Salty Brine State Beach

Narragansett Beach

Formerly known as Galilee State Beach, Salty Brine was renamed for a Rhode Island radio legend in 1990. It's a small but popular destination, especially for families with young children. Located near the state's largest commercial fishing port of Galilee, Salty Brine is permeated with the sights, sounds, and scents of Rhode Island's daily fishing culture. The beach, near bustling seafood restaurants, provides the best seat in the state for viewing the steady parade of ferries, fishing boats, and charters moving in and out of the channel. People flock to the beach for the annual Blessing of the Fleet parade of vessels on the last weekend in July. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (fee); showers; toilets. Best for: sunrise; sunset; swimming; walking.
