Sailing / Beaches
Newport is known by boaters worldwide for its deep harbor, blue waters, majestic scenery, and bustling wharfs. Learn the ropes at Newport Sailing School, then launch from Fort Adams, Kings Park / Wellington Avenue, or Poplar Street / Washington Street. If you would rather take a tour let the folks at Gansett Cruises give you a narrated harbor tour of beautiful Newport. Another exciting way to experience Newport from the water is sailing on a legendary 12 Meter Racing Yacht. The expert staff at 12 Meter Charters will take care of you for a family trip or large social event.
Sachuest Beach is a public coastline, just a few minutes away in Middletown, RI. It’s perfect for swimming, sunbathing, or exploring the trails of Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge. Easton’s Beach is also lovely. It is just a short drive and has enough activities, like a carousel, beach store, and snack shack, for a fun filled day at the beach.
