Discover real estate Block Island and see how the Block Island Nature Conservancy operates a large trail system on the island, offering walking and hiking paths through grassy meadows, quiet woods and along the sandy shore. Shops and restaurants are abundant in bustling Old Harbor, which is served by frequent ferry boats from Point Judith, Rhode Island. An hour long ferry ride is the most popular method of traveling to the island, although some prefer to take the easy 20 minute flight from the state airport at Westerly, Rhode Island.
Block Island has no natural harbor: two were built in the 19th century. Old Harbor was completed in 1876, and New Harbor in 1896. Block Island is a popular destination for local day trips and long-term visits alike. In the summer months, the island's population swells with visitors from all over the world. Summertime daily ferry service is available between the island and Point Judith, Newport and Providence. Ferries also sail from New London, Connecticut and Montauk, New York. At the state airport, both scheduled flights and chartered service provide additional transportation to and from the island.
Block Island Houses

Giovanni da Verrazzano, an Italian explorer sailing under the French flag in 1524, compared this 10-square-mile island to the Greek island of Rhodes. The island is popularly known as Block Island, named after the Dutch navigator Adrian Block, who visited there in 1614. The first European settlers arrived in 1661. In 1664, Block Island came under the jurisdiction of the Rhode Island colony, and the town of New Shoreham was formally incorporated in 1672. The island is located at the mouth of Long Island Sound, 14 miles east of Montauk Point, and from its shore Fisher's Island, Watch Hill, Point Judith, Narragansett Pier and Newport are visible.
