Visit this beautiful jewel of an island that lies 13 miles out to sea.
When you’re here, you’ll soon discover that the beach is everywhere and the only question is where to begin your exploration.
The Island’s 17 miles of beaches offer many choices. Within walking distance of the ferry landing is three-mile Crescent Beach, which is divided into three glorious parts: the Fredrick J. Benson Beach, Scotch Beach, and Mansion Beach, situated beneath cliffs and the stone walls of a vanished mansion.
The Greenway, a network of trails that wind for more than 30 miles, offers a peaceful retreat for the occasional stroller or the serious hiker.
The best way to tour Block Island depends on the visitor. Rent a bike, car or moped, jump in a taxi, or view your surroundings on horseback or foot!
If you are looking for something to do there is something for everyone. You can kayak, paddleboard, parasail, play tennis, basketball; go charter fishing, or relax on the beach. Maybe browse through our unique boutiques and galleries or visit the nightclubs for live entertainment.
