    Disgusting. Seriously disgusting. The beaches were closed due to the water being contaminated with sewage!

    Once called "the Riviera of NYC" this is a great area to relax and sunbathe. It is also a short distance from the paradise of seafood in City Island!

    Pelham Bay Park’s oceanfront is an ideal setting for any group that can’t decide between lazing and exploring. Relax on the beach or get a little more active: canoe, take a tour or go seal watching. Read more

    Make NYC Your Gym with your friends by challenging them to a pick-up basketball game at the Orchard Beach courts. Making NYC Your Gym with others is not only good exercise but tons of fun!

    Never get in the water. It's dirty. Sewage has been known to back up into it. Watch out for sand fleas by the shore in the summer.

    With a view of the beach, the courts draw the best ball players in the borough for summer night pickup games; Orchard Beach also hosts the annual Hoops in the Sun tournament.
