Gorgeous beach... lots of room

Wide white sand beach and uncrowded! Absolutely stunning and when the water is warm (July-Aug-Sept), it is divine. For residents only so you have to know someone....

By comparison to the west end, this is much better taken care of and less crowded in beach weather. Better for people who like quiet beach towns.

This is a very long sands beach. Lots of bird life and I'm sure lots of people in the summer. In September after Labor Day it is not deserve it but it's certainly is not crowded. We basically had Beach to ourselves. Very clean. Warm water.

Take the LIRR and walk to the beach - great boardwalk and beach. Summers are a great getaway from the heat.

Entry fee is high, therefore 4 stars. This beach is seemingly never-ending! It's very clean, there's hardly any litter on the beach. The sand is very soft and pleasant to walk on. There are plenty of lifeguards on duty in the summer. When sunny, it does get pretty full, but not outrageously full.

Such a great time at the beach! My family and I buy the passes which allow us access to the beach for the entire season. It was a family consensus that Jones Beach was just too crowded and not as fun. Then Lido beach came along and boy, we have not been disappointed. It's the same water and beach as... More

This is a beach right near where I live. It is just a little east of the Long Beach area. Same surf and sand.... great!
