Light Houses of Rhode Island THE guide and gallery for the lighthouses of Rhode Island

Poplar Point

Poplar Point is a beautiful lighthouse turned residence in Wickford Rhode Island.  It protects the south side of the entrance to Wickford harbor.  The streets in the neighborhood are all marked for no parking durning the day, so you’ll either have to go before 8am or after 6pm (which is fine for sunsets and rises) but the view from the beach there isn’t that spectacular anyway.  The best view is to go to Blue Beach in Quonset, hike the trail down to the beach, then walk west along the beach to the breakwall and then hike as far south along that as you dare.  It’s best to do any of that at low tide so there’s beach below the breakwater in front of the houses on Blue Beach.

The purpose of Light Houses of Rhode Island is to help you find all 21 lighthouses in our state and take some great images of them. If you'd like to buy my images they're available in the gallery as well. Please check out each light's page to see directions on where to park and suggestions on shooting each light.
