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

Of all the activities in Long Island, New York, spending a day at the beach is at the top of the list. From Jones Beach State Park, one of Long Island’s beaches within an hour from New York City, to Montauk and Orient State Parks on the east end, you’ll find your place in the sun. In fact 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).

Plus fishing, kayaking, surfing and scuba diving, you’ll never tire of all the things to do on Long Island.
