Birding in Rhode Island

About Mohegan Bluffs
Some people say the beach at the base of the 200-foot tall Mohegan Bluffs is the most beautiful on the island, harboring a secluded, if rocky, place to swim and surf. It’s a bit of a climb to get there, however, with a set of 141 steps leading down to the sand. Make the effort and the payoff is spectacular, with clay cliffs that offer one of the most dramatic views of the Atlantic in all of Rhode Island, and a vista that can extend all the way to Montauk on the tip of Long Island. The steps are easy to find – there’s a plaque at the Bluff overlook, commemorating the history of the bluffs (Mohegan Bluffs got their name from a Native American battle dating to 1590, where 40 members of a Mohegan raiding party were said to have been driven off the cliffs to their deaths by the Manisseans, the victorious natives of the island). Mohegan Bluffs is also the 5th stop on the Block Island Bicycle Tour.

About Block Island
Block Island is special in so many ways. It is unlike anywhere you have ever visited. Whether you enjoy a laid-back beach day, a vigorous bike ride, an adventure in a kayak or a paddleboard lesson, our little island is worth exploring.

What many people don’t realize is just how easy it is to get here. Only 12 miles off the Rhode Island coast, we are a 15-minute plane ride from Westerly, Rhode Island; a half hour on the high speed ferry from Point Judith, Rhode Island; or just over an hour on the ferry from New London, Connecticut. A Montauk ferry brings visitors from Long Island, New York, to our unique island. We also have a new high speed ferry service bringing visitors to and from Newport, Rhode Island, in just under an hour.

Once you’ve arrived on-island, you will not come across a traffic light or a big chain business, but you will be blown away by the natural landscape with stone wall-lined rolling hills, breathtaking bluffs, and pristine beaches.

If it’s an event you’re planning, Block Island may be the perfect destination. Many of the historic inns make unforgettable venues for your wedding or group getaway.

For anyone who enjoys outdoor activities, music, art, dining and scenic beauty, Block Island beckons. As close to the mainland as it is, Block Island feels like you have been transported to another world.
