We are considering a house in Snug Harbor and looking for information on the beach there. How crowded is it in the summer, etc? Originally from NJ and used to the beaches there, being easily able to walk, etc. Love RI, and the preservation ethic, but trying to adjust to the necessity of driving to the beach in many cases. We've never seen Snug Harbor in the summer, and wondering if it's a good place. Many thanks.

I am in East Matunuck near Snug Harbor. I love it. Unfortunately, unlike 20 years ago, East Matunuck is pretty crowded...the lot fills up early on summer weekends...say by 10 or 11 am... and you would have to wait to get in and park. Weekdays are not a problem. From Snug Harbor you can easily bike to the beach...it's about a mile.

The beach has some downsides you should know about. There are times in late summer when on a prevailing SW wind, the mung (red seaweed) comes in and makes the water like red pea soup. And when the seaweed piles up on the beach it attracts lots of flies. The West end of the beach has a lot of pebbles that pile up and make for a poor place to put a blanket down. I'm not meaning to be negative about the beach...it is a nice family beach and has a nice beach pavillion (tho it is aging) with showers and bathrooms and a concession stand with Del's lemonade.
