The heart of New Shoreham, the smallest town in the smallest state in the country, Old Harbor has been the busiest part of Block Island since the 1600s. The central concentration of shopping and storefront, Old Harbor is characterized by its classic buildings and locally owned businesses, with easy access to the beach and wide open ocean views.
Located at the southern end of the Great Salt Pond just off the Block Island Boat Basin, New Harbor is a central hub during the summer months. Just a 15-minute walk from the center of town or Crescent Beach, New Harbor is a hot spot for boating, offering scenery and fun waterfront dining options like Payne’s Dock.
To the north of town, Corn Neck is an exclusive area offering a different kind of Block Island experience. With easy access to the rest of the island’s amenities, the north is where residents can get away from the summer crowds and enjoy the quiet natural beauty that surrounds them, like the Sachem Pond reserve and the Block Island National Wildlife Refuge.
