Day 235/365: Crescent Beach on Block Island

My Favorite Place on Earth

If someone asked me where my favorite place on earth would be I would say Block Island. This tiny strip of earth is located 12 miles off shore of Rhode Island and is only accessible by ferry from Point Judith or Old Saybrook. I believe there is another ferry launch area, but we always left from Rhode Island, even though I lived in East Hartford. I started going to Block Island when I was in high school and during the 1980’s we walked off the boat and parked our beach blankets on the sands of Crescent Beach.

Crescent Beach, Block Island RI

Crescent Beach is the most popular beach on Block Island, it’s within easy walking distance from the Ferry Docks, has a full service beach house complete with showers, bathrooms, and a wonderful concessions to eat lunch. Block Island is an oasis in New England. The soft white sands are a contrast to the rocky pebbly beaches of Connecticut and the water is sparkling blue.

Personalized Block Island Beach Towel

Much of this is due to being twelve miles off shore and away from the sheltered waterways of Long Island Sound which tend to “trap” pollution, debris and make the beaches a little foamy and dirtier. Block Island reminds me of the Caribbean, a little slice of heaven.
