Moonstone Beach



South Kingstone, RI - As you can see it is covered with these small stones. My family used to camp in Rhode Island during the 1970's and remember this used to be a nudist beach. But it no longer is(read Moonstone Beach the Naked Truth)for the complete story. The beach appears to be closed due to being a nesting ground for the Least Tern and Piping Plover. Also, genital exposure is illegal in Rhode Island.

Hi Bill. Love your site! I had a question about Moonstone beach. I want to visit there, just to collect some of the stones. I know it is closed as a beach, and esp as a nude beach. But how do I get there? Can I visit it to take a walk on like, like you seemed to do? Thanks for the help!
