Rio - I've been to East Beach in June (not this year) and it's one of the best months you can go  - if water temperature is not an issue.  Still too early for summer crowds, greenheads and black flies.  There should be very few people there except for a half dozen thongers in the usual thong area meaning parking is not the hassle it will be later on in the season and you can wear as little as you dare with no problems at all. 

The piping plover nesting areas should be set up but there are easily avoided.  The only uniformed people I've seen in the last five years or so are the DEM plover counters who don't seem to care what you are wearing as long as you don't harass the birds. 

Wish I could be there, have a good day.

This summer is killing me! I have all morning/afternoon off everyday, and have yet got a real chance to go because of this weather! Just got some new Joe Snyder too and I'm dying to wear it to the beach, but rain and 65 just isnt beach weather haha. Hopefully towards the end of this week it'll be better.

Beautiful day at East Beach yesterday, though a bit breezy in the afternoon.  Today promises to be even better, but back at work, alas.  After arriving just before 7:00, to avoid the parking fee, I took a beach run and a bike ride, both wearing my new tri briefs to test them out for an upcoming race.  3" over the hip, they'll work well, having a good crotch pad and holding stuff at 12 o'clock to avoid saddle nose pressure.  They're good looking, more conservative than the 1" Arena bikinis I customarily race in, and didn't elicit any honks along US Rt. 1.

Finally settled in on the beach about 9:00 and stayed 'til 4:00.  There are still two large piping plover enclosures set up.  The regular thonging area, 20 minutes down the beach after the second enclosure, is smaller this year since it gets close to the camper parking area.  It was additionally constricted yesterday by some of the campers setting up westward of the parking area, limiting the space where thongers could keep their distance.  In a decent thong I don't see the need to bother, but most thongers seem to prefer to.

I set up at marker post #17 in the open area between the two bird enclosures, much closer to the main parking area, maybe an 8-minute walk.  Just beyond me, at the east end of this area, was one of the regulars I had a long chat with, then a bit westward a speedo guy, both there before me.   The one path over the dunes was at the west end, so no surprises from folks coming over unannounced.  

As always, I got there early and lay out openly, yet since I was dressed very briefly yesterday, I kept a low profile and hit the water for swims only when strollers weren't close at hand.  Couples and familes who came along later were strung out eastward from speedo man, and didn't seem to pay me much heed.  

I donned my boardies and tank top mid-day for another run down the beach, and seeing the situation at the thonging area concluded I'd made a much better choice.  Will probably set up there again as it gave me just enough distance from others to feel comfortable and avoid offending them, yet still feel part of the normal beach scene.  I figure if I get there early and set up in the open, they can choose how close they're okay with.  I always hope some pleasant lasses will plunk themselves down nearby and visit, but of course it never happens.

Nice to hear that you had a good day at the beach!  It was a beautiful day and I almost took the drive down to East Beach, but I knew that the traffic would be heavy as so many people had the day off....so I went to Horseneck, where it also was beautiful.  Ocean was nice as well and yesterday was the first day this season that I was able to swim multiple times...Not much thonging activity, but I enjoyed myself and look forward to getting down to Charlestown soon!

Shs92645, traffic wasn't bad at all on Sunday along Rt. 1, though heading home I made the mistake of getting on I-95 southbound from Rt. 2 in Pawcatuck.  Very slow, got right off on state roads.  Should be better all those weekdays coming up when I use up excess vacation time.

shs - to avoid at least some of the beach traffic on the way from 95 South to the Rhode Island beaches, take the 138 West exit off of Route 4 (follow the signs to the RI Veteran's Cemetary).  That will put you on Route 2 South which runs parallel to Route 4 and Route 1 but further inland.   It bypasses Narragansett, Scarborough and Point Judith.  Take Route 2 South all the way (watch out for radar traps). You pick up Route 1 South again about five miles from East Beach Road.  Be awake for the East Beach Road exit, it's a new one verring off to the right, otherwise turn at Michael's Texaco and double back. 

By the way, if it's a weekend and you are late enough to encounter beach traffic, forget East Beach.  The parking lot will be full by about 8 am - weekdays are much better.

Bet you get there today, Shs92645, The-Retired-Guy.  Glorious weather report -- lots of sun, light breeze, good temperature and wind direction to keep the flies at bay.  If I didn't have a meeting scheduled, I'd be taking a vacation day, arriving early for a run at water's edge, a bike ride along Rt. 1, and several long training swims thru the day in my wetsuit, to get ready for a triathlon July 19.  Maybe next year I'll be The-Retired-Guy, too.  Enjoy! 

Rickl, good day for a little salt water for a change.  If you go, I'll be interested to learn how the week-day crowds are, and where you find the best place to set up is.  I thought pole #17 in the area between the two large piping plover enclosures was ideal, at least on a Sunday.

Life changes - I won't be making my frequent trips to East Beach anymore.  Perhaps a few times a season rather than several times a week of previous summers.  We've become more or less full time nudists with a membership at a full fledged nudist camp. 

East Beach has definite advantages but it's hard to beat All Nude All the Time.

THURSDAY:  Hazy, muggy, few showers and/or t-storms possible .... This is the forecast for Providence, the weather along the south coast can be very different.  Usually a lot better due to the proximity of the ocean.  Sounds like it might turn to be a good day.  Best of luck on Thursday, let us know how it goes!!

I'd like to find a place where my girlfriend and I can wear thongs at a beach, but we go to college in Bristol and cars aren't allowed on campus. Unfortunately, public transportation doesn't reach all the way to East Beach...does anyone know an area closer to the Newport area?

Well, any of the beaches in Newport you can go thonging, but preferrably 2nd and 3rd beaches. 2nd is kinda more relaxed and it's away from the visible traffic that passes through there going to Middletown near West Main (?), 3rd Beach is really secluded but it tends to be a more family oriented places, but I guess you wouldn't really have a problem thonging there.

Thanks, Undercover20. I take it 2nd Beach is the best place to go then. It'll be the first public beach either of us have tried it on but I guess just avoid the crowds and families and otherwise just go about things normally. I don't think anyone would give her grief except maybe roving Maxim scouts, but I'll probably keep a pair of shorts handy for myself.

You can't have a car at RWU???  I'm surprised by that unless you are freshmen and the rule applies to that class...anyhow...from past experience, if you go to 2nd beach in Newport, facing the beach from the road - go far right and you will find it a bit less crowded....but actually also from experience, you are more likely to find a thong-friendly crowd at 1rst beach, even though the beach is not as nice, there have been more thong sightings there over the years.Wherever you end up, just go for it...it is perfectly legal in Rhode Island and you won't be run off of the beach!

We're both going to be sophomores so we don't have cars yet (because we wouldn't have been allowed to use them last year). So...preferably 2nd or 3rd, but the crowd is friendliest at 1st...so basically any beach is fine. Sounds good to me. Thanks guys!

Excellent day at East Beach.  Arrived at the parking lot at about 9:40 - it was already 3/4ths full.  Made the usual trudge down to pole #41 in a Dore thong.  A few glances but no problems at all.  After an unusually long plover season the beach is entirely free of the roped off areas.  The weather was as good as it gets although blowing sand was somewhat of a discomfort - not that bad.  The wind off the water kept the greenheads and little black flies at bay.  Only one greenhead was encountered all day - he got away with a successful bite. 

There were about 7-8 other thongers along the dune line.  Nudes were able to walk to the water with no problems due to the less than usual amount of beach walkers.  All in all an excellent day.

Joe - check out previous posts in this thread.  Not much changes at East Beach from year to year.  But if you are coming from Route 1 from the direction of South Kingstown be aware that there is a new turn off - veers to the right instead of the left and it comes up quickly.  If you miss it you can always turn around at the convienience store just over the hill.  Parking this time of year, especially on a weekday shouldn't be a problem.

First day of the season at East Beach - arrived around 10:30 to a virtually empty parking lot (the unpaved road to the parking lot is extremely rough - take it slowly).   This year's piping plover nesting area begins around pole #11 and extends all the way to pole #39.  About a 15-20 minute walk along the water's edge.  The usual thong area is about 100 yards long before another plover area begins.  These areas will 'shrink' as the season wears of and should be gone around early to mid August.  There was one other thonger present.  The wind was brisk so the windscreen was erected.  Behing the windscreen the sun was intense in spite of the aur temperature being in the low 70's.  Thong of the day was a Dore Triple Dip that covered absolutely nothing but looked like something from a distance.  Very quiet, no bugs.

Hit East Beach today. Beautiful day. Perfect wearther, not a cloud, light breeze, even went into the water (up to my thong).didnt quite get all the way in.Wore my black thong with green and red racing strip.
Went down to pole 40. One guy surf casting nude.  Met another pleasant older gentleman who sat near me behind his windscreen and was tanning nude. Only a few passers by. Got some heads turning with my thong. I kinda liked that.  As I walked back toward the parking area. Two Hot girls tanning with gstring thongs and topless. They were on their stomachs but you could see quite a bit. Didnt want them to turn over anyway..Just gorgeous bunns on both of them.  Hope to see some of you soon on the beach..

Wow. got me stirring in my pants...I waved and smiled..They waved back. Really Cute..On is pretty thin with smallish tits..The other very curvy but firm..Both gorgeous.
Hope to see them there every day...Plan on getting there by 10 am tomorrow ..I think Ill wear my bright blue thong with the zipper. Hope I meet some other thongers..say Hi.

I decided to go to East Beach on the 25th, Tuesday, to escape the heat in my area. Upon arrival at about 10 AM the lot was a quarter full of cars and I also noticed new structures where the porta potties used to be. I didn't need to use it however. I set myself near pole 9 in a nice sandy area.  With the exception of about 30 minutes where a marine layer had passed through reducing visabilty somewhat, the day was perfect with the max temp reaching about 75, consistant light winds off the water. I wore a lava thong by Sunup Sundown all day. Took a nice walk down to the far East end of the beach and back. I recieved waves and smiles from most people I encountered. A pretty dark haired woman who was wearing a near thong waved and came to me to complimented me for wearing it. She was there only 30 minutes, I believed she was paged and had to leave early. After 2 minutes in the surf and couple on horseback gave me the thumbs up, I left at about 5. I hope this will be a great summer @ East. It's a good start anyway.

Stunning day at East Beach.  The plover area are the same runing from about pole #10 all the way down to #40 but the walk was worth it.  There were five other thongers/nudes (behind wind screens) along about 100 yards of non-plover beach - plenty of room.  Today's thong was a lime green Dore tie-side g-string.  Very small and untied most of the day to get maximum sun.  The beach itself was pristine with very little debris and other crap - that will come as the late spring wears into summer. 

On the walk back to the parking lot there they were.  The two girls of legend!!!  Not topless but both wearing lovely thong bikinis!  This something that we definitely need more of.  It makes the walk in the hot sun worth it.

 When I get down there sometime soon, I plan to head to my favorite spot, around pole #11.  Will the young ladies mind if an old dude in a g-string hangs out nearby?  I'll probably be getting there and setting up earlier than they will, so they can decide!  Hope I don't scare them off.

They were around pole #7 or 9.  The plover area begins around pole #11 and goes all the way down to #41.  Probably once they realize that your intentions are honorable they would probably enjoy chatting with you.  You might tell them about this message board.  It might be helpful to have a list of thong and beach related web sites.  I've found that information is always welcome.

Absolutely stunning day at East Beach!  Arrived around 8:45 to an almost empty parking lot.  Walked up to the usual thonging  area.  The Plover nesting areas are long gone and the condition of the beach is excellent.  There were eventually three thongers and five naked guys.  Three of the naked guys were busy building the most elaborate sand and driftwood fort ever seen at East Beach for most of  the morning.  The size of the fort was such that they must work on it whenever they go to the beach - nice job for what it is.  

There were very few shoreline walkers it felt great to walk the beach in my lime green Dore tie side g-string.  Water temperature was warm and the light breeze kept what few bugs were around at bay. 

All in all a perfect Thursday.

Fantastic day at East Beach yesterday -- sunny and hot, breeze off the water to keep bugs at bay, calm water for long swims, light crowds and practically no kids.  10th car in the lot at 7:50. 

Took my long bike ride on Rt. 1 for an hour, then hiked down the beach 6-7 minutes to my favorite spot, by pole #9.  After a dip, I donned my thong and headed down the beach for a run, to the breachway 2 1/2 miles distant (okay, some walking, too). 

Pretty empty beach.  On the way back I passed a few folks at the regular thonging area.

Back at pole #9, a guy leaving the beach reported he'd just been busted by a DEM guy in the thonging area who was responding to a nudity complaint.  Probably those textiled folks who'd "invaded" their space.  $100 fine.  One other guy, too, who didn't leave and who later bent my ear when I took a stroll down that way. 

Having promised to be home for dinner, I pulled on my squarecut and left the beach about 4:30.  Hope for at least one more super day at East Beach before the vehicles are allowed to drive on it September 15. Thereafter, you're okay in a string if you don't mind gawkers, but it's sure a different scene, not as enjoyable as the pristine nature preserve that defines it up until that time.

From what I understand a textile couple has peroidically "invaded" the thong area this summer causing discomfort to the regulars.  That's all I know, what they specifically do and why is anybody's guess.  Maybe they are they see themselves as the self-appointed "Nude Police" armed with cell phone and a sense of moral superiority.

Re:East Beach Charlestown Rhode Island RI

Wear a legal thong and go and setup near them.  Make sure your thong is fully legal and not at all transparent.  Setup close you can be friendly, in a neighborly way. 

You may get to find out what they are all about. You might find they think they are the moral police, or maybe it is a guy trying to convince his girl that wearing a bikini must be ok, if others are wearing a lot less.

You refer to them as the "textile couple" which is a term used by nudists to describe people in cloths. But on a public beach, even the nudist public nudist beaches in the USA people are allowed to wear swimsuits or cloths if they wish. So how does a  "textile couple" invade "the thong area" ?  Are not thongers also wearing textiles?

If your problem is that you want to be nude on a public beach that is not a nude beach, or engage in other behaviour that should not happen on a public beach, and consider the "textile couple" is cramping your style, get over it. It is a public beach so wear a legal thong and obay the law.

I go out on the public beach several times a week and ALL the other people wear some form of textiles.  Some wear board shorts, some wear bikinis and some, mainly the women wear thongs, BUT all are perfectly legal because no one is nude,  and no one is sneaking off to have sex in the dunes. (What's done underwater is only shared with the fishes)

If you are wearing a legal thong then you should not feel anyone cramps your style or invades your space unless they setup within a few feet of you. In which case make friends.

 Rickl494, I think I saw the couple you speak of on my first visit of the season to East Beach.  They weren't there last Wednesday.  Also, from what other regulars tell me, they're okay regulars themselves who like the thonging area and are friendly with the thongers, just don't choose to wear thongs themselves.  Which is fine, very much in the spirit of JM's comments above.  It's pretty much the same where I hang out in my string, near pole #9, though the ratios are reversed:  couples, family groups and assorted singles, most in board shorts and two pieces and the occasional delicious bikini.  Folks are spread out, so those of us thonging don't get in their faces.  It's clear what we're wearing, yet they're okay with it and there's never any hassle.  I prefer this environment to the thonging area because it feels so . . . . normal!

It's been pretty misreable so far.  Any sunny days have been in the 50's or lower, warrmer days have been rainy or cloudy.  Hopefully that will change with the upcoming week. 

By the way the RI DEM is proposing to increase daily beach parking fees for residents from $6 to $10 on weekdays and from $7 to $14 on weekends and holidays. Non-resident beach parking fees would increase from $12 to $20 on weekdays and from $14 to $28 on weekends and holidays. Season passes would increase from $30 to $60 for residents and from $60 to $120 for non-residents.  These changes are supposed to take effect in time for the Memorial Day weekend.

 I arrive at the beach early on  Thursday June 16th.  There were not many people there when I arrived, and not many came during the day.   I headed to the Thong area, and was alone for most of the day.  Around 2 a guy showed up in a bikini.  During the day I talked to guy in a g-string.  I was in a skinz g-string suit.

The weather was perfect.  Not to hot, with a nice breeze.  I stayed until late afternoon, but wished I could stayed much longer.

A quick look at the RI DEM Rules & Regulations for Parks and Management Areas, November 2010 mentions "Public nudity is prohibited" with no further on what exactly "nudity" consists of.  For what its worth years ago Channel 10 did a story on thongs in other parts of the country at the end of the piece the reporter said, "thongs are perfectly legal in Rhode Island."  Riothong didn't seem to have any problems in his June 18 posting.  There has been at least one ticketAttidute might count  written for nudity already this year so something should be worn, if a cop tells you to cover up then cover up.

I checked out east beach for the first time about a week ago with a friend and it was great.  We didn't get there until later in the day, 4pm I think?  I'm not sure, but it was late enough that parking was free.  Walked to the area mentioned on this board (between posts 30 and 40) and it was perfect. We had a large section of beach to ourselves such that I felt completely comfortable; I changed from my square-cut to a thong almost immediately.  We saw one guy laying out in a bikini - he tossed a towel over his but as we walked by (not needed).  There was also an older man set up by the dunes behind a fence pen he had created with some black plastic and stakes.  I'm guessing he did it to do some nude sunbathing, but we found it kinda creepy as he was standing there just looking at people.  Later when we were leaving we saw the same man in a thong as he was taking down the fence.  He should have just laid out in his thong, I thought the fence he made gave a bad vibe.
Has anyone camped here before? How do you go about it and how much is it? I'm very interested.

 I checked out the website for reservations and it says RV only.  Is there tent camping at east beach?

No tent camping at East Beach allowed, Wearsthongs, so far as I know, and I go there often.  As self-contained units, RV's have their own sanitary facilities, which is probably the reason they're allowed to spend the night.  No other camping arrangement is provided for.  Whether patrols occur I can't say, as I've never stayed late enough to know.  But I do get there very early to take runs on the beach, and have never seen any campers other than the RV's.  It's a beautiful spot, don't blame you for wanting to spend the night.  I'd love to, too (though the wife would throw a fit!).  If you do decide to try it, it's at your own risk, and I don't know the penalties if caught.  Does anyone else?

I am confident  that they run at least one patrol at night on the beach.

Wear my thong at East Matunuck all the time.  Go to one end of the beach.  Get some looks but who cares.

Are there crowds down at the end of the beach there?  In a thong I'm okay with folks around, but since I wear tan-thru strings to avoid tan lines, I'm more comfortable when folks are spread out, as at East Beach.

It is a little to busy for that style but the crowds will thin out over the next two weeks.  If you have time, check it out for your self.
