“the preferred beach of the locals”
Sachuest Beach (2nd Beach to the locals) is actually in Middletown, but is still considered one of the Newport RI beaches. It is only a few miles from 1st Beach, and is next to the 300 acre Norman Bird Sanctuary. 2nd Beach doesn't have as much going on as 1st Beach, but it can still get pretty crowded during the height of the summer season. This beach is preferred by many over the other Newport RI beaches because it is a little more peaceful, the water is cleaner (less seaweed), and the waves are better (surfers prefer this beach). 2nd Beach has a concession stand with a good sized menu, and there's usually a Del's Lemonade truck at the western (surfer's) end of the beach. Whether you like going to the beach alone, or you'd like a quieter trip to the beach with your family, this is the spot.
