Barrington Beach, Rhode Island is approximately four acres of sandy shoreline that overlooks Narragansett Bay and estuary.
This is one of Rhode Island’s many quaint little beachfront spots where you can come to relax, take in the scenery and enjoy total serenity.
When we first arrived at Barrington Beach, I came upon a slight knoll covered with tall grass gently blowing with the incoming sea breeze. The refreshing ambience immediately titillated my senses.
People set up their beach chairs and enjoy the nature that unfolds right before them. The lapping waves against the sandy shore has quite a calming effect.
The brief video below provides only a glimpse of what its really like being in such a gorgeous place. Once you have watched the video, enjoy the rest of the article. Stay tuned!
The Barrington locals beach their kayaks and small skiffs along the water’s edge. The multicolored self-propelled vessels offer a picturesque photo that gives a unique atmosphere to this enchanting destination.
The slightly calmer bay waters offer no more than an intermediate challenge. However, there are days that require a bit more effort to overcome the ocean’s strong current and shifting winds.
Since May 1828, the Nayatt Point Lighthouse has been guiding sea going vessels through the treacherous channel for more than a century. The lighthouse was notoriously known for its poor construction and was very hard to maintain for its keepers. I wish we had more time to investigate.
The northeastern coast and especially the New England states boasts many quaint little townships. Unlike the more popular and mainstream vacationing destination, these tranquil communities offer an off-season stay that creates a relaxing experience.
