Salty Brine State Beach

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Although its actual beachfront is small, Salty Brine State Beach boasts the newest facilities of Narragansett, after a small pavilion was finished in May 2010. A wind turbine is on the site, and the pavilion features a number of energy-reducing green innovations.</p>
<p>The beach was renamed in 1980 from Galilee State Beach to its current name after Walter "Salty" Brine Jr., a beloved Rhode Island broadcaster that passed away in 2004. He hosted a children's show on WPRI television in the 1950s and 1960s, and a morning radio show on WPRO from 1942 to 1993. Brine was also famous for his snow day cancellations, especially "No school Foster-Glocester!"</p> <p>A small clam and food shack, Salty's Landing, route: {:action=>"show", :id=>"saltys-landing", :controller=>"listings"} -->, is also at the pavilion. <!-- name: George's of Galilee, a popular seafood restaurant, borders the beach and provides private access for its customers. There is also an overlook area popular for waving to the Block Island Ferry and other boats. Parking is available in a small lot at the beach, and at additional paid lots and limited free spaces near the beach.</p>
