Quonochontaug (Quonnie), Rhode Island

Quonnie's laid-back style - the beach, the ponds on each side, the breachway, the ball-field...

Quonnie is the Rhode Island oceanfront community located between Quonochontaug Pond to the west and Ninigret Pond to the east. There are three recognized areas within Quonnie: West Beach, Central Beach and East Beach, each with three different amenities.

West Beach is a small area located immediately east of the Quonochontaug Breachway. Many homes are located along the breachway, which is a man-made channel connecting the Salt Pond with the ocean. It features a small private beach and tennis courts.

Central Beach Fire District is located in the middle of Quonnie. It is thickly settled with some lovely homes. CBFD provides a short walk to a private beach, tennis courts and community ballfield. Central Beach also maintains a boating access on Quonnie Pond with moorings out front.

The Quonochontaug East Beach Association (QEBA) owns one of the longest private beachfronts in southern Rhode Island. Its beautiful sand dunes provide a special setting for beach life. QEBA members also share access to both Quonnie and Ninigret Ponds through various right-of-ways.

Membership in CBFD or QEBA entitles owners to join both the Quonnie yacht club and tennis club. Many joint tennis and golf leagues add to the camaraderie.
