  • Beautiful well maintained beach and the food concession (Salty's) had restaurant quality food. Fried fish sandwich was huge.  more »
  • After a peaceful few days in Narragansett we decided to spend our last day — a sunny July Saturday at the Beach. It was crazy busy with hundreds of people, chairs and umbrellas.  more »

  • This is the best place in the state for both early and late season swimming as the shallow water heats up faster and stays warmer longer. It is a clean, family beach with a nice play area for the kids.
  • The location of this beach is nestled amongst some of the nicest beach homes. The beach is clean and we'll kept. The pavilion offer both male and female restrooms. The ocean water was refreshing although it had much seaweed. Although there were many people at the beach it was not congested. It was spacious enough that you can play your music and not disturb anyone. I enjoyed Roger W. Wheeler beach and will visit it again.
