MIDDLETOWN, R.I. (JUNE 3, 2021) – Wondering about high tide or the surf at Second Beach or who sells those awesome tacos at Surfer’s End?
Try “Beach Basics” for those answers and more through the Town’s website.
Accessible at https://mdl.town/BeachBasics online, the goal is to give beachgoers all the information they’re looking for in one place to make Middletown’s family friendly beaches that much more accessible.
“We’re always looking for new ways to improve the experience at Second and Third beaches,” said Will Cronin, the town’s Operations & Facility Manager who oversees the beaches. “As part of our new outreach, we wanted to make it as easy for visitors and those thinking of coming to our beaches, whether it’s our hours of operation to where to get a parking sticker and everything else.”
On a typical summer Saturday or Sunday, town estimates indicate approximately 10,000 people visit Second – or Sachuest – and Third beaches.
For some, the beaches are the perfect getaway from the hustle of everyday work life, the manageable surf and natural environment like paradise. Others enjoy the fine sand, beautiful vistas and catching up with family and friends. Whatever the reason, the beaches are known among the best in the region.
As part of the new “Beach Basics” page, there’s information and links about:
- The hours of operation.
- The daily parking rates
- Where to buy a parking pass for the day or season.
- Where to call if you have questions during business hours.
- How to file a compliment or complaint about the beaches any time of day for the beaches.
- Whether swimming is open for the day.
- When and where dogs are allowed on the beaches.
- The current weather at the beaches.
- Up-to-the-minute surf and tide reports for Second Beach.
- Who the vendors are at the beaches and more information about those businesses.
- Links to cameras to see the action at Surfer’s End, the main lot and by the main concession stand.
Cronin said all the information has been available at different places online or other locations, but it made sense to combine everything in one place.
“Rain or shine, people love our beaches,” Cronin said. “Everyone says their unspoiled beauty is the crown jewel of Middletown and they’re really the town center of Middletown. We love sharing them and want everyone to have the best experience possible.”
