The Misquamicut Business Association is a non profit group of like minded business owners who work tirelessly to improve your experience in Misquamicut. Forty Five businesses at the beach as well as over one hundred who service and supply us take part in the association.


The MBA was formed in 2000 and since then is responsible for the maintenance, promotion and events at Misquamicut. Springfest, Fallfest, Guy Fawkes Bonfire Night, weekly classic car shows and Drive-In Movies in the summer are just a few of the things that we do to make your stay with us enjoyable!

We are pleased to work in conjunction with the Town of Westerly, the Misquamicut Fire District, the Ocean Community Chamber of Commerce and South County Tourism Council.


– Promote events that strengthen our community
– Provide a unified voice for the businesses in Misquamicut
– Create a welcoming environment for the guests and residents of Misquamicut
– Handle general maintenance of beach rights of way
