Free parking as the town is pretty much shut down for the winter. Excellent beach to walk, takes about 1 hour to walk to the point and back, stopping to look for shells, etc. Nice level of surf to hear the waves crashing, which is...More

We went in November. There was a trash can at the entry way. We didn't see much (no wildlife, no people, etc.) I'd try it again in the Summer.

Nice little area to take a walk and, if it's off-season, it's quite peaceful and isolated. The water was a deep sapphire blue.when I was there. Beautiful.

Whether you choose the calm cove side or the open beach side, this is one of RI's treasures. It's also wonderful for walking and if you are into birds, bring your binocs, because this is a well-known birding hot spot. Just don't try and come...More

I love Napatree when it is not beach season. Walking out there on the point is so peaceful, and off season your dog can go too. Beautiful views. Summertime it is tough to get parking because Watch Hill is crawling with people.

My wife and I and one of our friends visited Napatree as we read it was one of the best spots in RI for shelling. Judging by how many shells my wife came home with I'll go along with that statement, haha! I was more...More

Sorry for my late answer ( didn't get an alert !! ) , last August we easily found a parking place by the shops in Watch Hill both for the beach and a bit of shopping. Just in case you are not from the US ( I live in France... More
