MIDDLETOWN, RHODE ISLAND - Let's Get Beachy!
Bordering the popular resort city of Newport, this diverse coastal community is where you’ll find the Norman Bird Sanctuary, which encompasses more than 325 acres of diverse habitats and seven miles of marked trails, as well as the Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge, which offers a 2.5-mile trail with panoramic ocean views.
But TOD brought his sunscreen because he loves a good beach. Middletown offers some of the best:
Sachuest Beach, locally known as Second Beach, is a South facing, mile long, family friendly beach with good surf and great sand.
There is a concession stand, bathrooms, changing area, showers, grills, picnic tables and shade structures located at the main building. Port-a-johns are located at the base of each pathway.
Third Beach is a beautiful, family friendly East facing beach. Third Beach has less waves and overlooks Third Beach Harbor located near the mouth of the Sakonnet River. There are grills, picnic tables and a shade structure located near the boat ramp. Port-a-johns are located in the parking lots. Equipment rentals and a Del’s Lemonade cart can be found near the boat ramp (on the south end).
