From the 150-foot dirt and clay cliff at the southern end of the island (called “the bluffs”), you can see the new offshore wind farm. The bluffs are named for a battle in which, lore has it, the local Manisses repelled a band of attacking Mohegan Indians. From the top of the bluffs you can also see Montauk Point, at the tip of Long Island, NY. At Payne Overlook, a few hundred yards west of the Southeast Lighthouse, stairs with more than 150 steps (count them!) descend to the beach below. For many visitors, the steps, the beach below and the trip back up the steps are the most memorable part of their Block Island trip.
