Beaches

Long Island beaches are world-renowned for their fine white sand, spectacular waves, miles of boardwalks, beach trails, shore-side restaurants, public picnic areas, and beautiful sunrises & sunsets.

Of all the different activities in Long Island, New York, spending a day on a stunning Long Island beach is at the top of the list. Favorites include  Jones Beach State Park, one of Long Island’s beaches within an hour from New York City, Montauk, Fire Island, Robert Moses State Park and Orient State Park on the east end. Two Long Island beaches, Coopers Beach in Southhampton and Main Beach in East Hampton, are consistently named in the annual ‘Top Ten Beaches in America,’ list by Dr. Stephen Leatherman (aka Dr. Beach). Take part in watersport activities including kayaking, boating, fishing, stand-up paddle boarding and surfing.

Check local beach information before arrival, due to COVID-19 some beaches are only available to town or county residents at this time. Beaches are operating at lower capacities to support social distancing.
