Destination guide

The perfect New England beach town

If you dream of summering in New England, you likely envision an environment that mirrors Narragansett Beach. It’s a delightful coastal town that is as pretty as it's pristine. When you book a Narragansett Beach vacation rental, you’ll have easy access to the waterfront. It’s renowned for its smooth waves, and at just a mile long it’s simple to walk the entire length. There’s plenty to explore here, but you may be so spellbound by the feeling of soft sand beneath your toes that you won’t want to step too far away. Understandable.

Things to do

Narragansett Beach is illuminated by history

One of the area’s most renowned attractions is the historic Point Judith Lighthouse. Built in 1816, it’s about 6 miles south of the beach and is the perfect spot to witness living history. Under a mile away is the Narragansett Indian Monument, a 23-foot sculpture made entirely from a Douglas Fir tree. Perhaps the most eye-catching attraction here is the Towers, the remains of what was once the Narragansett Pier Casino. It’s on the National Register of Historic Places, and plays host to social events. This is the spot to snap a great photograph or two.

Activities

Classic beach life for hardcore water lovers

Chances are you're a hardcore beach and water lover if you’ve booked a Narragansett Beach vacation rental. You won’t be disappointed by the fun-filled activities, including the annual Independence Beach Party in July. You can make like a character in a ‘50s beach flick and head to the North Beach Clubhouse for the Movies on the Beach series. Explore the waters on the Block Island Ferry, which go from Port Judith and Block Island directly across Narragansett Pier. Here, you can go shopping or enjoy a leisurely stroll or a guided walk.

Weather

Warm or cool, Narragansett Beach is perfect

Typically warm and pleasant, the weather in this area is exactly what you'd expect of a coastal beach town. Expect a light breeze as you exit your Narragansett Beach vacation rental. Don’t fear winter, though, as you can still enjoy the beach even in January, when surfing conditions are ideal. Snow coats the sand and creates an intriguing visual. Sure, it’s about 20 degrees, but if you’re serious about the water you’ll make it happen. Naturally summer is amazing, too, and even with the sun beating down it never gets too hot.
