Explore Rockaway Beach, Queens, NYC Summer 2020
If you are looking to go to a beach in New York City, Rockaway Beach is the place to go, especially around Beach 100th-Beach 120th Streets. The beaches here are much better than at Coney Island. Plus, the ferry ride to and from Manhattan affords some really great views of the City.
A vast, sandy beach and 5.5-mile boardwalk draw throngs of families to Rockaway Beach in summer for swimming, sunbathing, and sports like volleyball and skateboarding. Seasonal vendors sell pizza, arepas, and Italian ice. Surfers catch year-round breaks all along the coast. Liyana's World video.
