Which beaches in New Jersey are free
The top 5 beaches in and around New York City
Unfortunately, not everyone knows where to find these spots in sandy paradise. Tourists who come to the city during the warmer seasons and want to cool off with overpriced ice cream, or end up in overcrowded public swimming pools, don't know that wide sandy beaches are just a few, air-conditioned subway stations away! Maybe it's because Manhattan Island has no coastline. To get to the beaches, you have to leave the center of the universe and visit the other 4 boroughs of New York City: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. You can travel further to lie on the wide beaches of Long Island.
A beach for every part of the city
Without further ado, for those hot summer days and nights in the city that never sleeps, head to these New York City beaches and stay cool!
1. Coney Island, Brooklyn
Just like Manhattan, New York Habitat offers a wide variety of Brooklyn apartments. Take this two-bedroom Brooklyn vacation rental (NY-15000) for example, it's perfect for exploring the bustling neighborhood while staying near the beach. This accommodation has a private rooftop terrace with panoramic views and is only about 5 blocks away from the subway line F, which takes you instantly to Coney Island.
2. Rockaway Beach in Queens
3. Orchard Beach in the Bronx
This man-made beach was once called the "New York City Riviera". It certainly has some great deals: The crescent-shaped beach looks out over Long Island Sound, and has playgrounds and food stalls along the boardwalk. After an afternoon in the sun and water, we recommend that you spend a day on City Island, which is a few minutes' walk from the beach. This picturesque island has a real, small, fishing village and is famous for its seafood restaurants. City Island Lobster House has top notch crab cakes, while the Original Crab Shanty Restaurant has great seafood noodles. To get to Orchard Beach, take the 6 subway all the way to Pelham Bay Park, and then hop on the Bx12 bus to Orchard Beach.
4. Great Kills Park on Staten Island
Staten Island's most famous beach is Franklin D. Roosevelt Beach, which has a boardwalk that stretches for 4 kilometers. Less known is Great Kills Park, the beaches here are less crowded and offer more privacy. The drive to Staten Island is lovely in itself. First you can take the 1, 4, 5 or R Subway downtown to the South Ferry Station in Lower Manhattan. Once there, board the free ferry to Staten Island. The ferry makes its way through New York Harbor, past Liberty Island and offers breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline. Staten Island has its own trains and you can easily pay with your MetroCard. Take the train to Bay Terrace and you are almost there: just a 3 block walk east and you are in Great Kills Park. If you go south you will come to an idyllic harbor with small boats. On the east side of this marina is a peninsula with a small harbor and a nice quiet beach. Aside from baths and showers, there isn't much else here on this side of the marina so make sure you bring your own picnic basket!
In case you fall in love with Staten Island or need more time to see all that it has to offer, we have this first class island villa for you. This four bedroom villa (NY-15040) even has its own pool, and if you move in, get a 3 day free limo service that can take you to the beach in style!
5. Long Beach in Long Island
Long Beach is truly a gem: the white sand is smooth, the beach is clean, the water is refreshing, there are great waves for surfing, and parking is free! In addition, the beach is easy to get to even if you don't have a car. The LIRR (Long Island Rail Road) gets you here in less than 60 minutes from Penn Station in Midtown, Manhattan! The only disadvantage is that the beach itself is not free: all beach visitors aged 13 and over must buy a $ 12 ticket to enter the beach at designated entrances (only on the weekend from May 16th to June 17th and daily from May 23rd) June to September 3rd). If you're already based in New York, we recommend purchasing a LIRR Beach Getaway Package: For just $ 21, you can get a round-trip train ride and beach access package. Watch the sun set over the Atlantic and feel like miles away from hectic New York City.
It would be awkward to write about Long Island's beaches without at least mentioning Jones Beach, Fire Island, and Cooper Beach. These three famous vacation spots are all a little further from New York City, but they definitely deserve an Honorable Mention! Jones Beach was developed by Robert Moses and is considered one of the most beautiful parks in the New York City area. It has a lot of great things like a pool and an amphitheater where concerts are held in the summer. Home to an impressive lighthouse built in 1857, Fire Island has 26 miles of coastline and quaint towns like Ocean Beach and Fire Island Pines. After all, Cooper Beach in Southampton was named America's Best Beach in 2010. Here you get a glimpse of the imposing mansions in the Hamptons, a beautiful gazebo, and pristine white sand.
