Beaches in New York

New York State has some of the best beaches anywhere, with a perfect stretch of shoreline for just about everyone to fish, hike, boat, kayak, surf, and so much more. Long Island has top-rated beaches including Coopers Beach in the Hamptons, ranked among the top 10 in the nation by Dr. Beach, as well as options from Jones Beach on the Atlantic Ocean to the North Shore beaches along the Long Island Sound. You can find beaches on lakes and rivers throughout the state, from the Lake Ontario beach at Selkirk Shores State Park in the Thousand Islands-Seaway region to Seneca Lake State Park in the Finger Lakes to one of the largest freshwater beaches in America on the shores of Lake Champlain in Plattsburgh on the Adirondack Coast. New York City also has great beaches from Rockaway to Coney Island.

For the ultimate beach getaway, dip your toes in the sand at luxury resorts like Long Island's Gurney's Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa, featuring 158 rooms, suites, and beachfront cottages complete with dramatic ocean views and direct access to a 2,000-foot private sand beach, and Lake Placid's Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa, where you can relax and unwind on the private lakeside beach.
