Block Island Feature

Block Island, a tiny three by seven mile island off the coast of Rhode Island, USA, has plenty of beach to comb.

There are 360 degrees of sand and rock beach around the island.

Block Island Stairway

First inhabited by Indians dating back thousands of years, this island was once covered by glacier.  The glacier left behind rolling hills and over three hundred natural ponds.

Indian artifacts regularly turn up after storms and sea glass is abundant for those serious beach combers.

Not exactly like picking daisies...but if you put in some effort, you may uncover some tasty pieces left over from the days before the invasion of plastic.

Block Island Beach Sand Writing

Beaches are accessible from almost any part of the island.  For a complete list and description of these beaches as well as how to get there and where to stay, check out this site:
