Location of Rhode Island state in USA
Narragansett Bay is a bay and estuary on the north side of Rhode Island Sound. Covering 380 km2, the Bay forms New England's largest estuary, which functions as an expansive natural harbor, and includes a small archipelago. This bay is mostly within the state of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, but small parts of it extend into Massachusetts.
Of over thirty islands in the Bay, the three largest ones are Aquidneck Island, Conanicut Island, and Prudence Island. Bodies of water that are part of Narragansett Bay include the Sakonnet River ; Mount Hope Bay ; and the southern, tidal part of the Taunton River. The bay opens on Rhode Island Sound—Block Island lies less than 32 km southwest of its opening—and the Atlantic Ocean.
