Natural Feature
“This is our favorite local beach. It's becoming more popular and can get crowded on holidays and in the summer, however, it is such a large beach that even on crowded days, it's still great. In the summer months, there are food and shopping vendors set up. It's easy to drive to with a huge parking lot, or there is a bus. You can also take the Rockaway ferry and bus from there.”
