Mohegan Bluffs, New Shoreham

Must see · Geologic Formation · Beach
Look far out on the Atlantic Ocean from the top of Mohegan Bluffs before heading down to dig your feet into the sand at the bottom. The 46 m (150 ft) cliffs remain a favorite scenic point on Block Island, and they take their name from a 16th-century battle in which Niantic Native Americans sent invading Mohegans plummeting to their death below. Today, a steep staircase of about 100 steps provides safer access to the beach.

  • Beautiful spot but WAY too crowded to do in COVID-19. Got all the way out there and then said “skip it!” Too many people. Stairs are too tight.  more »
  • Great spot. One of the highlights of our trip! It’s a short bike ride from downtown. Beware...there are a lot of steps to get down to the bottom!  more »

  • Never busy, and beautiful. What more could you ask for
  • Beautiful but not for the fainthearted. Stairs go down part of the way then you get to scramble over rocks, sand and rough footing to the ocean floor. We went right after a huge rainstorm and the water was still flowing making it quite slick. The trek up and down was well worth it.
