Great beach!!! Arrive early to get a good parking spot. The parking lot is close to the other attractions on Atlantic Avenue. The best time to visit is during the week.

We spent a few hours where with the kids. Easy to get to. They don't charge admission in the evening. The beach and sand were nice. Not many shells. The bathrooms were really gross.

Misquamicut is a popular beach with CT/RI/Mass residents. The coastline is huge, beaches are clean and protected and the water is swimmable. Enjoy other attractions on the 'boardwalk' full of restaurants, bars , stores, ice cream and even a water park.

One of Rhode Island’s gems! Clean water and lovely waves! Long beach to walk too. Please pick up your own trash to keep it lovely! Thanks

The beach was really nice on the day that I went. The waves were gentle for my toddler. Mid-week tends to be less busy, and also cheaper to park. Weekends can be a mad house.

Love misquamicut but they have got to do something about all the alcohol being snuck in. I’ve visited twice in the last couple weeks and both times a group of “younger” people are getting drunk and not even trying to hide it! I realize lifeguards...More

The traffic to get to the beach was awful. Lines to get in parking at 3:00 in the afternoon. Get there early or sit and wait. Beach is very crowded but that did not bother us.

Nice beach but have to admit super crowded. Usually choose Jones Beach over this one since Jones has a much larger beach area so you're not on top of everyone. This one really has no space but the waters and waves are good. Sand area...More
