Create an itinerary including Mohegan Bluffs
Look far out on the Atlantic Ocean from the top of Mohegan Bluffs before heading down to dig your feet into the sand at the bottom. The 46 m (150 ft) cliffs remain a favorite scenic point on Block Island, and they take their name from a 16th-century battle in which Niantic Native Americans sent invading Mohegans plummeting to their death below. Today, a steep staircase of about 100 steps provides safer access to the beach. Put Mohegan Bluffs and other New Shoreham attractions into our New Shoreham trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Nice views of the cliffs and the ocean waves coming in. There are quite a few steps but they are easily manageable, just take your time. On a nice day it is worth the time and effort.

  • Never busy, and beautiful. What more could you ask for
  • Beautiful but not for the fainthearted. Stairs go down part of the way then you get to scramble over rocks, sand and rough footing to the ocean floor. We went right after a huge rainstorm and the water was still flowing making it quite slick. The trek up and down was well worth it.
