Many of the beaches are part of the NYS State Park system, and offer a variety of amenities to the visitors, such as picnic areas, umbrella rentals, camping sites, fishing, and more – take a look at our Long Island Beaches guide to ensure you’ll have everything you need for a great day of catching rays and chasing waves.
