Sand Hill Cove Shore and Bank Protection Project

Sand Hill CoveSand Hill Cove Beach in Narragansett is located immediately east of the entrance to Point Judith Pond. It is about 31 miles south of Providence.

The project, completed in 1955 at a cost of $122,000, involved widening one mile of beach an additional 65 feet by the direct placement of sand, construction of five stone groins and construction of a steel bulkhead behind the eastern half of the beach. The bulkhead forms a barrier that prevents beach sand from moving inland.
