A nice hike along the beach is what the doctor ordered. During the spring time the winds are just right for bringing a kite along and enjoying the day.
In the summer, the parking lot fills up very quickly so get here early if you want to hike for the day. Don't forget to bring your swimsuit and towel to take a dip.
In the fall, enjoy the cool weather and smaller crowd as you take a hike that will last you a couple of hours. There is plenty of bird watching by the ponds to do as well as exploring along the beach for interesting sea creatures that may have washed up.
Take East Beach Road off US1 in Charlestown, east of RI 216 intersection.
That road leads to the parking area for this beach sandwiched between Ninigret Pond and the Atlantic Queen

UpsideCharlestown and East Beach are part of the last remaining barrier beaches that have not been overdeveloped on the Eastern Seaboard. If you are in to wildlife and nature this is a great place to go. Here you will find a mixing of ocean dwelling sea life and fowl with salt pond life. Truly a unique area and one not to be passed by.
Downsideits a beach, can there be a downside?????
CommentGreat place, a little too busy in me for the summer. Early and late fall are the best times of the year to enjoy this serene area, less tourist and more nature. Water is still warm enough to go swimming in, but cold enough to keep away all the New York and Connecticut folks.
