East Matunuck State Beach

Noted for its strong surf, East Matunuck State Beach totals more than 144 acres with a modern beach pavilion, powered by wind and solar energy, and large parking lot. Watch the ferry cruise by on its way to Block Island and fishing boats coming in and out from the Port of Galilee. Plan to arrive early on summer weekends when parking fills up quickly (Check the status of the parking lot here). Be sure to plan and purchase your parking pass ahead of time so you can use the express lane!
