About Block Island

Block Island has been designated as “One of the 12 last great places in the Western Hemisphere” by the Nature Conservancy. We hope you will come visit us and see why the island is so special. We are well known for the beautiful beaches, fantastic landscapes, clear waters, stunning bluffs, family activities and artist communities. In addition, we have a special way of life here known as Block Island Time – very dedicated and hardworking but also keeping the world in perspective. A walk through the maze, a hike to the North Light or clamming in the pond for an afternoon feast are favorite events for us And Laura and I do like to get out on the water on the sailboat or in the kayaks.

Block Island is located 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island and 14 miles off the tip of Long Island (Montauk). The best way to get to the island is by ferry from Pt. Judith, RI or you can fly from Westerly RI. During the summer, high speed ferries run from Pt. Judith and New London, Ct. In addition to the beaches, Block Island is also well known for shipwrecks and it has a long maritime history that we all believe you will enjoy when you visit. While our favorite time of year is in the spring and fall, the summer is fantastic and beautiful. Block Island is also unique as ~50% of the island is protected land through different conservation groups. As the Nature Conservancy states it “Block Island is made up of a diverse array of geographical features and habitats such as beaches, sand dunes, coastal bluffs, morainal grasslands, maritime scrubland, salt ponds, kettle hole ponds, and various other freshwater wetland ecosystems.

These habitats support a unique assortment of wildlife, including over 40 species classified as rare or endangered. It is thus one of the most ecologically significant areas in the state and in the entire northeast. Thousands of migratory shorebirds, waterfowl, raptors, and songbirds also depend on the Island as a stopover point on their journey north and south along the Atlantic Flyway.

North Light Fibers is located in the middle of the island and is surrounded by special animals and some of the greatest hotels available. Please come visit the island, see our mill and visit our store – once you come here for the first time, we are convinced you will be back.
