Re: Advice re: September trip to Block Island and Newport

For showers on Block, I have walked down the beach road ( Corn Neck Rd) from the dinghy beach on the east side of great salt pond..toward town. There are public showers on the ocean side. I can't tell you whether they'll be open in late sept though. Just bring a back pack, with your stuff..then continue the walk into town after your shower. Fred Benson Town Beach - Block Island, RI

For weather/seas on block island sound, I've usually just checked the Noaa website coastal forecast for block island sound, and looked around, since I'm usually departing from the connecticut river
