Ha Yeah Right! - Every time i go to Naragansett, its either smaller than Newport, or if it is bigger, they close out completely. bullshit this place beats newport HA!

Good spot - Great pre dawn beach break. Known for it's Kooks be careful in larger surf. Sand bottom makes this a kook paradise. If you get there early enough there is always street parking. Fall and Winter is always free parking right in front of the beach. Breaks best closest to the Coastguard House and past lifeguard stand #6.

Yeah ok - so everyone always says that Narragansett Beach is so much better than anywhere near Newport, and welllll yo full a shit! every time i go there, it always is smaller and shorter than over in or around newport.
