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.

We hope you join us to relax and play in our beautiful white sand ocean beach- surf the waves, ride our beautiful 1950's carousel, visit Save the Bay Exploration Center and Aquarium, or get married at a gorgeous beach front ceremony location and celebrate in our newly refurbished ballroom.
