Long Beach, New York City

4.5
#6 of 32 in Beaches in New York State
Beach Nature / Park
Strikingly different from the city's concrete jungle, Long Beach offers a welcome retreat with its long stretches of soft sand, clean water, and open sky. The beach has a resort destination feel, with a long bamboo boardwalk perfect for a long run, a separate bicycle lane, and plenty of benches. Apartment buildings line the back of the beach, but a handful of nearby food trucks keep you nourished. A swimming area is roped off, and lifeguards patrol the beach. Onsite amenities include bike rental and beach volleyball courts. Put Long Beach into our New York City itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Clean, good crowd, and close to other bars and restaurants too. The boardwalk gives you the opportunity to bike and get to other places walking without having to move your car.  more »
  • so I thought. I was lovely... the boardwalk was really beautiful and u almost thought you were somewhere in the south. Just enjoy the sun and relax at the beach, even when thy charge for it.  more »
  • It's not like the Italian beaches:) is really immense, there are 50 meters and maybe longer before you get in the water. Very clean beach, available services and premises on the waterfront (few indeed). Then the sea, that's not Italian, is still the ocean, then colder, rough and often dirty. In summer you pay the entrance to the beach, about $10, but you can go for a sunny day, if only for a walk (free)

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
