I love Napatree when it is not beach season. Walking out there on the point is so peaceful, and off season your dog can go too. Beautiful views. Summertime it is tough to get parking because Watch Hill is crawling with people.

This was my favorite beach in Westerly. Not as crowded as others (because parking is impossible and far from the beach). Shorebirds and dunes and just lovely, especially around sunset when there are fewer people and the sky colors up.

This is easily one of the most beautiful beaches in New England. Wonderful views of Watch Hill and Fishers Island sound. Parking may be at a premium so get there early.

By late August, the crowds are small enough that there is plenty of room for you to stake out a spot on the beach (which is on the ocean side of the Point, with views that can't be beat). On the cove side, there is...More

This is a very nice sandy beach - and for a weekday mid August - which is not crowded at all. Plenty of space to find a nice spot not too far from the waterline. Pretty view across the water to the lighthouse and some...More
