A message from the Chamber

Block Island’s Mask Ordinance

Welcome to Block Island

Block Island is located 13 miles out to sea. So, get ready for adventure; the only way to travel to the island is by boat or plane. It is certainly worth the trip!  Block Island is spectacular and becomes more beautiful with each changing season.

The island is surrounded by 21 miles of beach.  More than 43 percent of the island has been preserved; twenty-eight miles of walking trails are maintained for your use. There are acres of open space which are a haven for flora and fauna, it’s no wonder Block Island was named one of the “last great places” in the western hemisphere by The Nature Conservancy. Walking and biking are an excellent way to take in the rolling hills and stunning vistas, but that all depends on the visitor; many decide to rent a bike, car or moped, jump in a taxi, or view your surroundings in a helicopter or on horseback.

If you are looking for an activity there is something for everyone. You can swim, kayak, paddleboard, parasail, surf, bike, go charter fishing, or relax on the beach. Browse through our unique boutiques and galleries, grab a bite to eat in one of our fine restaurants or visit the nightclubs for live entertainment.

Block Island was settled by 16 farming and fishing families in 1661 and more than 200 years later it became a vacation destination. Block Island in the 1880’s went through a building boom and many of the historic buildings that you see today are from that Victorian Period. Staying in one of these iconic hotels is like stepping back in time.

The Block Island Chamber of Commerce is ready to help you plan your special Block Island vacation. We can assist you in your decision on where to stay on the island, where to eat, where to shop, and what to do! (401) 466-2474 Water Street, Block Island

We are located at the Old Harbor Ferry Landing.  

We hope to see you soon!
