Mohegan Bluffs Reviews & Ratings

  • Very beautiful. Waves are usually big, they are very big when the tide is coming in. Be aware of an undertow and riptides. Stairs on the way down are steep so if you arent capable of intense climbing then I would not venture down. Very beautiful but a long way down!

  • The steps are tough, but worth it. This beautiful secluded beach offers some of the best views on the island. The bluffs are truly stunning. For those who may not be physically able to take the stairs, there is a small path off to the left leading to a fenced off overlook that offers a beautiful view of the bluffs and the ocean.

  • Beautiful place to take in some great views of the Atlantic ocean or take a walk down the steps to the beach below to get a view of the magnificent Mohegan Bluffs. The steps don't lead completely to the beach below but you can access it at your own risk. If you're in decent shape and are adventurous I highly recommend continuing down to the beach. There's a rope at one point if you need something to help with your descending or ascending the bluffs below the stairs.

  • This place was amazing. Block island is small enough to walk/cycle/scooter around. The bluffs were our first stop. Brought a picnic lunch and enjoyed it at the bottom. We are here at the end of May, not many people here at all, but I imagine it would be crowded at peak season.

  • One of the most beautiful spots in RI. A must visit on Block Island.
