This sandy Rhode Island beach is located about 30 minutes from both Providence and Newport, and just 15 minutes from the airport. It is situated on the saltwater Greenwich Bay inlet and is surrounded by restaurants, boat ramps and marinas. Kids will love the beachfront playground that can be found at Iggy’s Boardwalk restaurant, which also offers cool ice cream treats on a summer day. Lifeguards are on duty at Oakland Beach during the summer months.
Iggy’s Boardwalk restaurant is situated right along the beachfront.
A free parking lot is available.
