To Narragansett Pier, Rhode Island from:

Galilee RI (Block Island Ferry): 5 miles (3 km) S

Newport RI: 17 miles (27 km) W


To get across Narragansett Bay from Newport, you will have to cross two bridges on RI Route 138: first, the Claiborne Pell (Newport) Bridge from Newport to Jamestown Island (toll), and then the Jamestown Bridge from Jamestown Island to Saunderstown (no toll).

From Saunderstown, head south on US Route 1 for access to all South County beaches as well as Narragansett, Point Judith, Galilee and the Block Island ferry, and Watch Hill.


Amtrak trains between New York City and Boston stop at Westerly and Providence RI, whence you can take a bus to other Rhode Island destinations.


RIPTA operates local and intercity buses within Rhode Island. Bus 66 connects Providence with T F Green Airport, Narragansett, Scarborough State Beach, Roger W Wheeler State Beach, and Galilee for Salty Brine State Beach and the Block Island ferry. More...
