Mohegan Bluffs New Shoreham
#1 of 24 Outdoor Activities in Block Island
We’ve experienced nude beaches in Miami and St. Martin during the winter, but as Bostonians, during summer we often go to Block Island where swimsuits are unnecessary on the beaches beneath the cliffs on the south...
Really spectacular and serene, it was very different than the beaches by the Bay.
Mansion Beach New Shoreham
#2 of 24 Outdoor Activities in Block Island
There are many different beaches on Block Island and really you should visit as many different ones as you can even if you have a favorite.
Like all of the beaches that span Crescent Beach, the water is usually clear and beautiful (you may even spot a striped bass swimming pass!) and the sand is very nice.
Fred Benson Town Beach New Shoreham
#4 of 24 Outdoor Activities in Block Island
Great easy to find beach with the most parking, and easiest parking of any of the beaches.
I've been on beaches all round the world, from Florida to Spain to Texas and California.
Ballard's Beach New Shoreham
#5 of 24 Outdoor Activities in Block Island
I'm a staunch believer in safety, and I'll gladly only visit 2 beaches in case an emergency strikes!
Ballard's is awesome!!! Best to stay the whole day- breakfast on the beach, catch some rays and waves then lunch and drinks watching the band play.
Coast Guard Beach New Shoreham
#11 of 24 Outdoor Activities in Block Island
Plenty of places to explore if you have the time noticing a hidden beach where you can hang out.
Although the road is unpaved and long to this beach, it is a great place to watch the boats come in and out of the salt pond.
Pebbly Beach

If you do decide to walk on this beach be very cautious, especially at low tide when the rocks can be very slippery.
