  • I liked this place because the Beach also has the option to swim in pools. There is a large adult and another also wide for children. You cannot take or eat anything or around swimming pools or on the beach. Only in the area that is used for these purposes, dinde sold fast food, some salads, beer, sodas, water among others. Also have in store or gift shop where you can buy various articles coml souvenir of the place. I thought it was a wonderful experience in NY, specifically long island. It is the 1st and only beach is visited in NY so far but say me that is the best.
