Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Block Island, USA your home away from home

Holidaymakers who want to experience the relaxation of a beachside vacation, enjoy a beautiful sunset as they watch the Atlantic Ocean roll in wave after wave should have Block Island high on their to-do list. This locale is an islet off the state of Rhode Island, USA separated from the mainland by a 10 mile-wide strait called Block Island Sound. Apart from plenteous activities and sites to see, visitors can look forward to a wide selection of accommodation options including charming cottages, rental homes, farmhouses and beach houses.

Things to do on holiday to Block Island, USA

Many a couple have chosen this beautiful isle as their wedding venue and honeymoon destination and it’s not difficult to see why with its 17 miles of soft sands and cliffs that border the turquoise blue waters. It’s hard to imagine a place where one can get better wedding photos. And most everything needed for wedding ceremonies is available right there from photographers to music to catering. But even those without romantic designs can visit Block Island simply to unwind beside the gentle ocean and soak up some sun as they read their favourite book. Still in the spirit of R&R, visitors can rent bicycles or mopeds and cycle along the roads and paths that are along the beach. Those who prefer strolling in order to better savour the breathtaking views are of course welcome to do so. For a bit of fun visitors can do some shell fishing. However, they must be sure to obtain a license from the harbourmaster.

While some of the beaches here are not ideal for swimming due to boat traffic and strong rip currents, there are other things visitors can do there such as fishing. At the Ballard’s Beach holidaymakers can entertain themselves with a game of beach volleyball and at the Black Rock Beach, those into surfing will find some juicy waves for their boards.
