    Secret Gem

    I am so glad I found this here. It’s not the best beach in RI, but that’s not the point! It was such a joy to bring my pup to a real beach - sand, waves, ocean, bathing suits, and spend the day enjoying it myself. I recommend water shoes for swimming due to the shells/rocks if feet are sensitive. You can swim, kids can play, people are generally spread out enough to have plenty of breathing room. Dogs and people were all friendly, and my girl had just a great time playing! You can walk the dog in grassy areas too. There were 3 garbage cans, several picnic tables, and a ports-potty. Minus the Electric Boat buildings, in front of you is a gorgeous ocean view. It’s a small beach and probably enough people for this not to be the best place for an aggressive dog. Free parking. Afterward we went to dinner for seafood at Finn’s in East Greenwich, which is dog-friendly on the patio. I ordered a little grilled chicken for my pup and they brought it in a dog dish. Noticed some scattered trash on beach, so everyone should remember to clean up after themselves and keep this a nice oasis for our furry friends! So happy to be able to give my dog such fun experiences!

    Great Beach

    This was my first time bringing my dog to the beach and I was not disappointed! I only heard of this dog friendly beach from this app so I was a big skeptical but it really is a great beach that’s dog friendly! It’s a small semi-clean beach with many other great dogs and their owners. I would say the only little complaint is the amount of shells/rocks but other than that it’s an excellent beach to bring a dog. Will definitely be coming back soon!

    Our black lab had a blast here and we will be bringing him back tomorrow! Great place for dogs to get some swimming in!

    What a Hidden Gem

    This is a great place to take our dogs. We would never have found it without this app! Nice beach, water crystal clear, good place to swim and not at all crowded! Great grassy picnic area too...Watched the ferries to MV.. Will surely go back.

    great time for the pups

    We took the boys (2 German Sheppard pups 6 months) to the beach on Memorial Day. The dogs had a blast. It wasn’t overly busy and we had plenty of room to play. The beach was also clean so we didn’t have to constantly worry about them eating something. There were other dogs there as well but everyone respected the distance between the dogs.

    Beach for dogs in the summer

    We took our dog here and had a great time! He was able to swim on leash, even during summer (July)! Had a great afternoon.

    Doggie Friendly Beach

    Yes, it’s in a weird location, but it’s clean and the people, kids and dogs are friendly. Free parking

    Creepy

    Don’t make a trip of this. It’s smack in the middle of Electric Boat stuff. It feels creepy and like a place to do drugs or other bad things. I would bet the water is gross. Not worth it!

    Dog Beaches

    Several more that I know of on the West Bay in RI
    Fishermans Memorial at Pt. Judith
    Spinks Neck Beach on the other side of runway from Compass rose at Quonset.
    Or just google beaches and the state you are looking for them. Most all allow pets.

    Friendly people and dogs

    Met some really nice, chill people who all loved dogs...even the ones who were just there for the sand and sun.

    Awesome beach for dogs!

    Since there has been so many mixed answers about whether dogs are allowed or not, I called the North Kingstown town hall to ask and they confirmed that leashed dogs are welcome. This beach is small and secluded due to being near an airforce base. There is no charge for parking and a nice little picnic area also. Our dog had a great time and we really enjoyed being here. I highly recommend this beach for dog lovers and thier dogs!

    Amazing dog beach

    That was the only beach in RI and the cape with no time limitation where we could go with our dog even during the season. Also free parking and picnic area
