Rockaway Beach & Boardwalk
90-16 Rockaway Beach Boulevard Far Rockaway, NY 11693
One of New York City’s most popular summer destinations, the entire beach encompasses more than 170 acres of sun and sand, and every bit of it is put to good use. When the city warms up, New Yorkers of all sizes and types flock here. Seven playgrounds provide entertainment for the younger set, while volleyball and skating keeps adults active. The beach contains the city’s only surfing areas, and when the surf’s up boarders get in their wet suits and ride the waves, while in gentler waters, fishers cast their lines for striped bass and bluefish. And for those of a more traditional nature, there’s always swimming, sunbathing, and snacking.
