    Checkout the new extended bike path from cedar creek park that goes all the way to Jones Beach. Exercise and beach. You can also Stand up Paddleboard past the no swimming sign on field 6.

    Fantastic beach. Clean, but I just wish the bathrooms were closer to the beach instead of the ¼ mile walk back.

    Field 2 is quiet and huge.. The best field IMO.❤️ :) amazing sand. Field 6 is excellent, too but it has the smallest parking lot so get there super early bc it fills up quickly..

    All types of water for all different people! There are about six miles of oceanfront, a half mile of bay beach for stillwater bathing and two swimming pools to enjoy. Read more at MetroFocus. Read more

    I've worked here for almost 10 years, it's quiet in the winter and amazing in the summer, with concerts and even a few cold ones on the beach front

    Located 33 miles from NYC, it is 6.5 miles of sprawling sands, a two-mile long boardwalk, a theater, and is packed with visitors during the summer months.

    Always pleasant during the summer. But also nice for a walk during the winter months.

    This is a gorgeous beach, the waves are tough and the water is pretty cold, but it's not summertime in NYC without heading to a Long Island beach!

    If you want to stay away from the crowds go to field 2, a little longer walk but worth it. If West End 2 is open you'll have the place to yourself.

    The best beach on Long Island. The boardwalk can distract you if you, like me, are not a fan of the beach.

    Enjoy a treat at the SmorgasBar pavilion from 11-8pm through Labor Day. It's easiest to access by parking in Field 4 and heading to the beach via the Central Mall.

    Arrive before 8 a.m. or after 4 p.m. weekdays (6 a.m. or 6 p.m. weekends and holidays) and avoid the parking fees. As a bonus, the beach is far less crowded.

    Prepare for cold water and awesome waves. To be fair, though, those were probably due to the earthquake... Still fun though!

    Bring some earplugs! Not for the planes, but the announcer speaking too close to the microphone.
