A great beach to spend your day. Ocean was cold but refreshing. Water was clearer than expected. Will definitely be back.

Mansion Beach is one of the prettiest beaches on Block Island. It’s a public beach with waves and white sand. It is less crowded and private than crescent beach.

Just a pristine beach that has limited parking. No life guards, dog friendly. So beautiful. If you have a car, get here early & bring everything you need as it’s just a beach!

Mansion beach is a beautiful, clean flat beach. It is also a long stretch of beach that is perfect for a beach walk. We love it here.

There are better beaches on the island, but if you crave solitude, it's here. The only distinction is that you can see the bones of an old mansion before the long climb down to the rocky beach below.
