Nature / Park · Hidden Gem · Wildlife Area
Napatree Point in Rhode Island, often referred to simply as Napatree, is a long sandy spit created by a geologic process called longshore drift. Up until the Hurricane of 1938, Napatree was sickle-shaped and included a 1.5-mile (2.4 km) long northern extension called Sandy Point. Napatree now extends 1.5 miles (2.4 km) westward from the business district of Watch Hill, a village in Westerly, Rhode Island forming a protected harbor. It is the southernmost and westernmost point of mainland Rhode Island.

  • Yes, it's in Rhode Island, but it's such an easy drive from Mystic Connecticut. Well worth taking out the hour to see and walk it.  more »
  • Beautiful stretch ofrefreshing white sandy beach and gentle water. Off season is the best time to walk on this beach. September is particularly great.  more »
