    Block Island: The teardrop of Rhode Island

    Ferries drift across the Atlantic waters from New London and Judith Point carrying 1000s of vacationers each year to the handsome little island of Block. Walled in by steep cliffs of more than 250 feet, it rises from the light swells in a patchwork of wildflower meadows, pebbly coves, salt-washed jetties, and boulder-speckled hills. Beaches and bobbing kayaks, quality seafood restaurants, and pretty horse riding trails are all on offer here, while Block Island vacation rentals hide between the whitewashed timber homes of New Shoreham, or sit lost out between the undulating fields of the backcountry.

    Get back to bucolic life on Block Island

    It's all about enjoying the graceful contours of the landscape on Block Island. The whole place is crisscrossed by more horse riding, cycling, and hiking paths than you can shake a mouthwatering platter of Rhode Island seafood at. There's also bird watching by the bucket load, cliffs to scale, caves to wander, and small inlets to discover. Sea kayaks and boating excursions can take you around the rugged coastal cliffs, while an annual sailing festival in June means people flock here to settle in Block Island vacation rentals that are close to the pretty shoreline.

    Block Island brims with lighthouses, beaches, and bluffs

    If you've bagged Block Island vacation rentals that sit atop the rugged Mohegan Bluffs, then you can look forward to vacationing with sweeping views over the Atlantic Ocean, and close proximity to the redbrick Southeast Lighthouse. On the flip side of the isle, the North Lighthouse stands tall above the low sandbars and flatlands, where birding parks and beautiful coves like Crescent Beach offer a little more rest and relaxation. Closer to the town of New Shoreham, local history museums and charming East Coast seafood buffets nestle between the parks.

    Come and sun yourself on Block Island

    There's really no better time to enjoy all the delights of Block Island than between the months of June and September. This is the middle of summer in this corner of the Eastern Seaboard, and means hot days of sunshine, when the likes of Ballard's Beach and Crescent Beach are at their finest. This season also kicks off with popular sailing festivals and street parties for Independence Day, and means finding the earthy local eateries and breweries filled with lively crowds of other vacationers.

    Block Island sits out in the Atlantic Ocean

    Left out in the swells of the Atlantic Ocean, Block Island is a remote destination to say the least. The main way to get there is by ferry boat from Rhode Island, while those hulking dirt cliffs and steep walls of rock that surround the whole place might make it seem all the more impenetrable. But Block Island is anything but. After arriving in New Shoreham, you'll be greeted with a backcountry of undulating hills and sculpted valleys, where rare migratory songbirds nest on the northern wetlands, and the wild Mohegan Bluffs crash into the sea to the south.
