HEALTH Recommends Beach Opening

Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) officials recommend re-opening King Park Beach in Newport for swimming. This recommendation is based on results from water samples that show bacteria levels within acceptable limits. HEALTH will continue to monitor the water quality regularly throughout the summer season.

Conimicut Point Beach in Warwick remains closed to swimming.

PLEASE NOTE: BEACH STATUS MAY CHANGE ON A DAILY BASIS. For up-to-date information about swimming at Rhode Island beaches, visit HEALTH's website or for recorded information about Rhode Island bathing beaches, call (401) 222-2751.
