Second Beach

Also known as Sachuest Beach, this roomy beach is the combination of soft sand, perfect waves for swimming and surfing and stunning views of St. George's to the right and the Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge to the left. On a beautiful day the water is filled with sailboats. Every angle is Instagram worthy.

The Claiborne Pell (Newport) Bridge

Is this not the prettiest bridge you have ever seen? Not only does it bring you into Newport to see amazing views, but it is a sight in and of itself. Not only is it beautiful during the day, but at night when it is all lit up and the sun is setting. Just flawless.

The Cliff Walk

If you didn’t walk the cliff walk and snap a few photos did you even go to Newport at all? This 3.5 miles of views on one side and historic mansions on the other is a can’t miss spot with some of the best scenic attractions. Even your flip phone can capture the beauty.

Van Zandt Pier

Not only is this a beautiful place to view the sunset on the water, you can also go fishing, watch the fireworks and relax on the beautiful pier. You might want to change your setting to panorama because the 360° view is something that needs to be captured.
