Logo   East Beach State Beach, Charlestown RI
Good beach, but limited parking and facilities. But the good Blue Shutters Town Beach is just west of it.


East Beach State Beach in Charlestown, Rhode Island, is just a few hundred yards/meters along an uneven sand road from Blue Shutters Town Beach (map).

East Beach charges the same daily parking fee as other Rhode Island state beaches, but has limited parking and facilities: just composting toilets and lifeguards.

The beach itself is of medium-fine golden sand, but drops off fairly steeply to the sea, which means the surf is farily active and not good for children not immediately attended by an adult.

You reach East Beach State Beach from US Route 1, then south along East Beach Road. Watch for signs saying "East Beach" and "Blue Shutters Beach."

Plenty of beach on a weekday morning...
with a storm gathering.
