Heaven - This is one of Rhode Island's most scenic spots and a favorite among visitors. Purchased in 1989 by The Nature Conservancy and partners, the 75 acre Goosewing Beach Preserve is an historic landmark. Conservancy staff have been actively managing breeding populations of globally-rare Piping Plover and state-threatened Least Tern for the last two decades.

The Benjamin Family Environmental Center is ideally situated to offer visitors a view of the many types of habitats that make up this coastal pond/barrier beach ecosystem and offers seasonal nature walks and special events.Make Goosewing Beach Preserve a part of your Westport Point vacation plans using our Westport Point road trip planning app.
