Hubby and I love the shore, but NOT the crowds or noise which plague summer beaches. This is a favorite spot to visit off-season, when the long and beautiful beach is quiet except for a few locals walking, the occasional fishermen and folks like us...More

Great beach, but it can get really busy on the weekend! Typical for beaches. Free off season. Tourist attraction. Small old style beach hotels.

We were encouraged to check out the beach at this park. It's a shame that the town doesn't complain about the lack of care taken to maintain this otherwise beautiful place. No park staff even close.

Misquamicut State Beach, Westerly, RI has got to be the best of New England. A very wide and long beach with modern facilities. Great surf for body surfing or boogie boarding. The sand is normally free of rocks, but with varying weather it does change...More

Nice beach. Short on sand at high tide. Plenty of activities in walking distance. Very rough with a storm surge

Misquamicut beach in my opinion is the best beach for adults to stay at. Stay at the pleasant view inn, sit by the pool, get some drinks, go to paddy's at night for music right on the beach. Rent a jet ski from the purple...More
