- Just a short ferry ride from the Connecticut coastline, out in the Atlantic, Block Island offers the vacationer simple relaxation in a startling beautiful place. The Island is famous for its miles of free public beaches, sparkling clear waters, dramatic bluffs, and fun-filled activities for visitors of all ages. Spend the day strolling the beaches, going for a bike ride, kayaking, fishing or relaxing. Dine while overlooking one of the Island's two harbors. With a diversity of places to stay, from oceanside hotels to quaint inns and bed and breakfasts, Block Island is the perfect place to spend a weekend or longer.
- It's no wonder that the Nature Conservancy has designated Block Island "One of the 12 last great places in the Western Hemisphere."
