The best beaches in New York
The best beaches in New York
New York, an emblematic city, is the city of the Empire State, of Central Park, of the Yankees, of Wall Street, of the West Village, and also of beaches.
Visiting the urban beaches of New York is a walk that will also allow you to discover very authentic neighborhoods. Go not only in summer, the nearby New York beaches have their charm at any time of the year (dress up well if you go in winter!). Walking its traditional promenades -the boardwalks- is unforgettable.
The city is surrounded by stunning beaches. And when there are temperatures soaring to 30°C or 40°C during the summer months, swimming in cool salty water sounds pretty good.
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, or go even a little further, to the great beaches of Long Island.
Access to all New York county beaches is free.
Coney Island in Brooklyn is the iconic beach, the best known of New York’s beaches. Some New Yorkers say that the beach, the boardwalk and the amusement park have seen them spend some of their best days. Admittedly, the once popular tourist destination fell into decline after World War II. However, in recent years, Long Island has been revitalized: the boardwalk was redone, new restrooms and showers have been installed; In addition, it is once again a clean and welcoming beach that extends over 4 kilometers. And the most convenient thing is that it is easy to access by public transport. A cheap subway ride from midtown Manhattan takes you under an hour: you can take the A, F, N, or Q trains to the Coney Island/Stillwell Avenue station, which is only two blocks from the beach . Take a spin on the famous Cyclone Rollercoaster, grab a hotdog at Nathan’s Famous, cruise the boardwalk, relax on the beach and go swimming.
Walking along the same boardwalk as Coney Island you will arrive at Brighton Beach, a neighborhood that is also known as Little Odessa.
There you will see advertisements in Cyrillic, babushkas bask in the sun by the sea, caviar in the windows and restaurants offering piroguis and borsht. It is easy to imagine that they are in Slavic lands.
Surely Rockaway Beach will sound familiar to you from the song by The Ramones –hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach– the main advertisers of this almost 3-kilometre-long paradise for surfers
Rockaway Beach has been named the largest urban beach in the United States. It is also the only beach in New York with a surf area: there are two separate stretches of beach reserved for surfing. During the summer, the small waves are perfect for beginners; Seasoned surfers frequent this beach during the height of hurricane season, in early fall. The beach features a swimming area, a long boardwalk, food vendors, seven play areas, public beach toilets, and of course, plenty of sand to accommodate your beach towel! Rockaway Beach is also easy to access by subway, taking the A train or changing to the S line at “Picturesque Broad Channel”, to “Beach 90 Street” if you want to go to the surfer’s beach, or to “Beach 116 Street” to go to the swimmers beach. Join surfers, hip Brooklynites and local families at this versatile beach, an hour and a half by train from midtown Manhattan.
This beach in Queens is ideal if you want to swim, since it is less crowded than the beaches in Brooklyn.
Orchard Beach and the Promenade are part of Pelham Bay Park, a huge nature preserve in the Bronx.
There you will find almost 20 kilometers of white sand beaches. Of course, they will have to travel about an hour and a half from Manhattan.
In Staten Island there are several beaches, among the best known Cedar Grove, Midland and South Beach.
Getting to them is a little more complicated since you have to travel on the Staten Island Ferry, then take buses and walk.
Of all the options that we have presented to you, the Staten Island beaches are the least close by public transport, but they are quite an adventure, or a new place to discover for repeat offenders who travel to New York again and again.
New York’s beach season begins on Memorial Day (last Monday in May) and ends on Labor Day (first Monday in September).
The basic rule of the New York beaches is that you can only enter the water and swim while there are lifeguards on the beach.
The lifeguard hours are from 10 am to 6 pm, so refrain from doing it outside of those hours so you don’t have problems.
The other rule is to never bathe in areas delimited with red flags or signs that expressly prohibit it.
