Narragansett is a seaside community on the western shoreline of Rhode Island, noted for its beautiful waterfront real estate, sandy beaches, and relaxed lifestyle. Check out the links below to find information on Narragansett homes for sale, the school system, community statistics, and activities in the area.
Narragansett is located across from Newport RI, where the bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. Once strictly a resort community, the town has attracted many year-round residents over the last several decades, and now serves as both a suburban home base and a popular vacation destination. This makes Narragansett real estate very unique.
The large waterfront estates on Ocean Road have been divided into coastal luxury homes on sizable lots along the shoreline. Other enclaves, like Bonnet Shores, Great Island, and Point Judith, have developed their own distinct communities within the greater town. And with more full time residents, the school system and other infrastructure elements have developed into some of the best in the state.
Narragansett is a resort community with all of the amenities of year-round living. It is known for its great outdoor environment with pristine beaches, sport fishing and outdoor activities. Its spectacular beaches include the Town Beach, Scarborough State Beach, the Roger Wheeler State Beach and the private Dunes Club.
Housing options range from estates to cottages and luxury condominiums to just about everything else in between. The iconic Towers of Narragansett adjacent to the swelling, sandy beaches lend a Victorian air to its shoreline. The Port of Galilee, our vibrant seaside area replete with some of the freshest seafood restaurants in Rhode Island, functions as the main port for the Block Island ferries. All year round, Narragansett is a focal point of activity in the Southern Rhode Island region. Narragansett is a place with many activity options, yet remains committed to commerce, business, and community.
The town is comprised of several neighborhoods and villages: Anawan Cliffs, Bonnet Shores, Cedar Point, Galilee, Great Island, Jerusalem, Narragansett Pier, Point Judith, Sand Hill Cove, Salt Pond, Saunderstown (shared with North Kingstown), and Scarborough.
