With more than 400 miles of glorious coastline, it’s hardly a surprise that Newport is home to some of the country’s most extraordinary beaches. Looking to bask in an abundance of sunshine, sink your toes into the sand, and maybe even dare to take a dip? The blissful beaches of Newport beckon.

A Bounty of Beaches

From sandy, dog-friendly beaches perfect for windsurfing, kayaking, kite surfing and stand-up paddle boarding to rocky beaches with panoramic views of sea and sky, there’s truly something for everyone when it comes to Newport beaches.

Easton's Beach or First Beach, is located near The Cliff Walk and is perfect for surfing or boogie boarding.

Fort Adams Beach, is located close to downtown Newport and it features calm waters with the best view of Newport Harbor.

Sachuest Beach, technically located in Middletown, is the longest stretch of sand near Newport. It's close proximity to Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge makes for a unique beach experience. 

One of the best kept secrets among Newport’s many coastal charms is Gooseberry Beach. Tucked away in a secluded cove, it’s located along famous Ocean Drive -- just a scant mile from Newport’s iconic mansions and historic Bellevue Avenue. In other words, Gooseberry Beach offers the rare chance to be at the center of it all while simultaneously getting away from it all.

A Day at the Beach, Chanler-Style

If you’ve ever traipsed across the beaching lugging all of your belongings in tow, you’re probably aware that “a day at the beach” doesn’t always feel like one. Enter The Chanler’s extraordinary Beach Butler Service.

Enjoy round-trip transportation to and from Gooseberry Beach in a Chanler Buick Enclave; chic beach towels; a keepsake Chanler bag with sunscreen, Fresh Lip Treatment and bottled water; and a beach cabana with lounge chairs. Oh, and did we happen to mention our Beach Butler Service also includes a chauffeur to handle all of the details and set-up for you? (Short of rubbing sunscreen on your back, that is.)

And while you can always grab a snack at Gooseberry Beach’s convenient snack bar, we recommend arranging for a gourmet picnic lunch from The Spiced Pear for the ultimate in refined relaxation. Indulge in your choice of a sandwich, kettle chips and beverage along with tabbouleh salad, an apple and lemon panna cotta which are included. 

You’ve done the beach before. But you’ve never done the beach like this. Contact The Chanler at Cliff Walk today to start planning your sophisticated seaside getaway.
