Only Ballard's has it All! Visit Us

Ballard’s is closed for the “season”.

Ballard’s Beach Resort on Block Island is a seasonal beach resort featuring a restaurant, bars & tiki bars, a private beach (open to the public) with beach rentals of VIP Cabanas, chairs, and umbrellas, an inn, and a gift shop.  The restaurant, bars, beach,  inn, and gift shop are now closed for the season.  Ballard’s “season” is mid-May through the end of September (closing the last Sunday of September each year).  

In “season” you are able to enjoy our inside and outside oceanfront dining and bars, our beach tiki bars, our private beach and beach rentals, our inn and gift shop.  Guests are also able to host special events such as bachelor and bachelorette parties, private beach bonfires, private and corporate events and parties, and beachfront weddings during the “season”.

During our off-season, while we are closed, our guests are able to book online reservations of rooms, VIP Cabanas, beach rentals of chairs, and umbrellas for the next “ season”.  Also during the off-season, guests are able to communicate with us via phone and email to reserve special events for the following season.  Guests are able to order gift cards and shop our gift and apparel shop online year-round.

Ballard’s 2022 “in season” will be May 13, 2022, through September 25, 2022.  We look forward to seeing you in 2022 and if you need to reach us in the meantime you may call or email us.  Thank you for your interest in Ballard’s Beach Resort!
