Avoid the usual beach crowds at this away-from-the-subway location. NYC Beach Bus offers cheap round trips from Williamsburg.
Get there before the hipsters do. geez
Great beach. Plenty of room even on a busy day.
You can take NYC Beach Bus to & from Riis. (Public transit takes forever!) It picks up passengers in Williamsburg & at Barclays Center. $14 roundtrip or $10 one-way. http://www.nycbeachbus.com/more/
A secret gem.🌅. This is our go-to beach.. 🌟It's a lot quieter if you head on over by the pitch & putt side. (Once you pay to get into the parking lot, go allllll the way to the left)🌟
Interesting social panorama:-)
there are bathrooms and usually a food truck with snacks and coffee in the main building and patio
Beach fun with the kiddies
Always amazing ❤️
Very spacious. Nice and quiet and not too many "ratchet" ppl!
The park is cool!
Filthiest beach in the tristate area.
Come on summer I'm ready for my beach days
Family Surrey ride
Gay boys: the constant wearing of boxer briefs or any other underwear not meant to be worn in water is overtly wack &cheap! Pls invest in a pair of trunks, briefs or shorts that are meant 4 water!
Really nice place to relax in the sun.
Riis beach sun was beautiful.
Pretty good friends barbecue
Finally, great food trucks!
"topless" actually means fully nude ;-)
Not for the prude ;-)
I start working here Sat and sun.... Renting bikes and kayaks come down and c me :-)
It was peaceful until 12:30
There is way, way more nudity during the week than on weekends.
Dirty, dirty and dirty. At your own risk
Cool place !
Great beach, very clean!
This beach is different from rockaway. Relaxed attitude,beer friendly, and chill people. You don't get the ghetto trash that comes in from the a train.
Too many rocks and shells
The southern beach has too many kids. The northern beach; to the left of the main structure is the gay friendly beach.
Love this place
Why the fuck did you bring a child to the gay nude section????
Who knew this was a National Park...
Beach is better than Far Rockaway there is one is on top another
SINCE HURRICANE IRENE DESTROYED THE FENCE AT 149th Street. BEWARE OF PATROL JEEPS DRIVING RECKLESSLY TROUGH THE SAND. THIS IS NO PLACE FOR CARS DO NOT LET THEM CHECK YOUR COOLER .
BEWARE COPS HARASSING GAYS TO PLEASE THE WHITE TENANTS NEXT DOOR -- DON'T LET THEN CHECK YOUR COOLER
And by the way, I lost all my photos there because of the iPhone!
This is the most expensive beach I have ever been till now. Because I dropped my iPhone 4s into the sea! I have to pay for a new one after that beach trip! What a bad luck day it was!
COPS HAVE BEEN OPENING PEOPLE'S COOLERS TO GIVE THEM TICKETS. WE NEED THE FENCE BACK UP. WE NEED TO VIDEO TAPE WHAT POLICE DO WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS - 10 COPS AT THE MOST PEACEFUL BEACH ?? WTF
Is there a nude section?
FOR MORE THAN 100 YEARS THIS HAS BEEN A "GAY HEAVEN" --I'VE BEEN COMING FOR 17 SUMMERS. IT ONLY GETS BETTER, AND GAYER. - - THE SAFEST BEACH FOR THE LGBT COMMUNITY AND THE MOST FUN. KEEP IT CLEAN !!!!
