Block Island, RI Guide

About Block Island

Located off the coast of Rhode Island, Block Island is a pristine place filled with natural beauty, dramatic cliffs, stunning beaches, and much more. With no stoplights and no chain stores, the island brings you back to a time when life was a little slower. Accessible by ferry, flight, and private boat, Block Island is a great destination for day trips and extended stays alike. Between the North Lighthouse on one end of the island, and the South Lighthouse at the other, lie unique shops, delicious restaurants, unique hiking opportunities, art galleries, kayak and bike rentals, and classic beaches.
