World's Best Beaches
Imagine this: It’s a sweltering summer day, and you’re wishing you were anywhere other than where you are. You grab a bathing suit, hop in your car, or board a LIRR train at Penn Station, and a few short miles later the strains of car horns give way to the sound of ocean surf lapping up on the shore.
Welcome to Long Beach. Long Beach is the quintessential East Coast surf town with a famous beach, topless cars, hot bodies, and the hippest new hotel north of South Beach. Not to mention a boardwalk and a main drag with cool restaurants and bars that spill out onto it.
Looking for a scene? Head on over to Jones Beach, one of the gems of Nassau County, Long Island. And the most popular beach on the East Coast. Featuring acres of white sand beach, a boardwalk, with an expansive ocean view, two architecturally significant bath houses, each with a swimming pool for public use, numerous concession stands, shuffleboard, volleyball, basketball, surfing and open air concerts–there truly is nothing that compares.
And if you’re looking for family fun, the beautiful white sands, convenient parking, and fun zone with a skateboard park make Nickerson Beach the ideal destination.
Of course, there’s also the North Shore and the rugged beaches of the Long Island Sound. Here, you’ll find world-class kayaking, bluefish and striped bass fishing as well as the deep waters and easterly winds that lure sailors the world over to Nassau County.
