Two long, fine Atlantic beaches with good facilities, near a state park with camping, and the ferry to Block Island.


Officially Scarborough North and South State Beaches, these popular summer destinations are next to one another, off RI Route 108 just north of Fishermen's Memorial State Park (map) and northeast of Point Judith and Galilee, Rhode Island.

The broad swaths of fine sand stretch for 2,325 feet (709 meters) along the Atlantic shore, and are backed by large parking lots and good facilities open weekends in May, and seven days a week from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Each beach (North and South) has its own large beachfront pavilion with free cold- and coin-operated hot-water showers, picnic tables, concrete boardwalks with gazebos and observation towers, toilets (including for the disabled), food and drink stands, and telephones.

There are 75 picnic tables as well.

Please read these Important Beach Tips so you'll know what you're getting into on a Rhode Island beach.

There's camping at nearby Fishermen's Memorial State Park, with rules for minimum and maximum nights' stay during high season (late May through Labor Day).

The ferry to Block Island departs from Great Island Road in Port Galilee (map), which is within walking distance from Fishermen's Memorial State Park.
