Get Your Toes in the Sand at One of These 5 NYC Beaches

With so much to see in the heart of New York City, the city happens to be blessed with fabulous, sunny beaches. Many of them are just a short trip from The Marmara Park Avenue.

If you’re looking for a place to escape from the hustle and bustles of life in New York City, look no further than these fabulous NYC beaches. 

1 – coney island

Coney Island is a Brooklyn destination for those who enjoy the thrill of rollercoasters and hot dogs. But there's so much more to this historic resort town! 

Head out on land or sea-level adventures like playing volleyball by its sandy beaches, taking kids around playgrounds painted with thrilling slides, and swimming in refreshing waters near an ordinary but impressive marine life sanctuary that houses real fish tanks.

You can also enjoy live music or a weekly firework display, and stop at the Coney Island Brewing Company.

2 – rockaway beach

NYC’s only legal surfing beach is in Queens. You can swim, fish, play sports, and let the kids run around on one of the beach’s seven playgrounds. 

Strangely enough, the beach became popular after the devastation of Superstorm Sandy. They rebuilt the destroyed community, and it quickly became a hotspot for NYC natives and tourists.

3 – long beach

The best way to enjoy Long Island is by taking in all it has on offer. There are so many things you can do, from shopping at one of the outdoor markets and strolling along East Park and West Park Avenues or grabbing food at an authentic restaurant. 

You can choose from Japanese, Greek, and Latino restaurants or just hang out in a good old Irish pub! 

If they’re feeling adventurous, then take advantage of our free concerts happening every day this summer!

A reminder: Don’t forget your beach pass!

4 – plumb beach

Educational and recreational opportunities abound along this section of the Brooklyn shoreline. It’s famous not only for its windsurfing, kayaking, and kite surfing but also for the horseshoe crabs that grace its sands in May and June. 

It’s far from the most bustling beach in NYC, but if all you need is sun and sand (and a public restroom!), Plumb Beach may very well be the place for you.

5 – orchard beach

Located in The Bronx, Orchard Beach is the borough’s only public beach, and you could spend all day here. Visit the concession stand, barbecue in the designated areas, play handball, and send the kids off to the playground. 

Walk the promenade and imagine what it looked like back in the 1930s, when “The Riviera of New York” was in its infancy. New York City is a place of endless possibility. Dreams have come true on Broadway, world-famous artists have walked the streets of Greenwich Village, and you’ll find a piece of history around every corner.

You can also find plenty of spots in our amazing city just to relax and be.

So drop off your bags in your luxury suite at The Marmara Park Avenue, don your bathing suit, and make your way to the kind of beach paradise only New York City can offer.
