Easton's Beach

Newport is blessed with a beautiful coastline and several public beaches to enjoy surf, sand, and sun.  The largest of them is Easton's Beach - locally known as First Beach. Located on Memorial Boulevard at the start of the City's famed Cliff Walk, Easton's Beach occupies a 3/4 mile long stretch of sand with board walk and Atlantic facing surf.

The Latest from the Beach

Easton's Beach Repair Information

Easton's Beach Repair Information

As part of our ongoing efforts to rejuvinate the Easton's Beach complex, we've recently awarded a contract to demolish the structures that house the Easton's Beach Snack Bar and Carousel. While the Rotunda and Bath Houses will remain, because of demolition, bath house passes will NOT be available this season, with hopes to bring them back in 2025. 

In the meantime, beachgoers this coming season will be able to enjoy a number of amenities, including food trucks, fully accessible restrooms, children's playground, and more.

The demolition follows a community meeting held in October of 2022 in which the condition of the beach and a potential vision for the future was discussed with Councilors.
