Offering the quintessential New England island experience, Block Island is the place to cruise to if you are seeking an unfettered beauty spot that's sequestered from the crowds.
Just 9 miles long, this secluded isle a mere 11 miles off the coast of Rhode Island is a real gem: the Mohegan Bluffs tumble down to completely unblemished beaches and surprisingly crystalline waters, with walking and biking trails trickling through its entire coast. As for activities, you have plenty to select: kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding or even being whisked up in the air for a spot of paragliding is an option.
Other highlights that must be explored on Block Island include the North Lighthouse, situated on the tranquil Northern coast, as well as the Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, renowned for its migratory songbirds.
