In Rhode Island it is all about the Beaches !


   Now I am talking about the public beaches in Southern Rhode Island


from Westerly to North Kingstown.  These are the great finds of the summer months for vacationers as well as local RI residents…whether RI beach goers are coming down from the ‘city’ or just trying to explore a sweet new beach that line our coastal waters, experiencing southern RI the native way is fun.

When it comes to waterfront and coastline, RI has it all with the great Atlantic Ocean at our toes!  No wonder we call ourselves the Ocean State.  For a small state that is only 37 miles wide and 48 miles long, the coastline runs for 400 miles with all the nooks and crannies to maneuver.  Remember we Rhode Islanders say – it is all about the RI beaches…here in RI real estate.

Here is a Quick List of the Southern RI Public Beaches you should be exploring :
