Facing south onto Rhode Island Sound, Easton's Beach, traditionally known as Newport's First Beach, is a broad half-mile-long (800-meter) swath of light grey sand sloping gradually into the ocean, with plenty of waves, usually fairly benign, though good enough for the surfers who show up starting at dawn.

The beach is flanked and backed by full facilities, including restaurants, parking lots, toilets, and even a ballroom.

Lifeguards are on duty daily.

Beach volleyball nets are active on any fine day.

Stay at the 3-star, 55-room Comfort Inn at Atlantic Beach or the adjoining 3-star, 68-room Newport Beach Hotel & Suites and you'll be right across the street from Easton's Beach, and only 2 miles (3.2 km) east of the center of Newport. More...
