2022: Long Islanders Voted Jones Beach Best Beach!
1 Ocean Pkwy, Wantagh
What would Long Island be without its beaches? This year, Jones Beach in Wantagh takes the top spot for best beach. Every summer, families flock there for some fun in the sun. It’s where generations of Long Islanders have made memories picnicking, playing in the sand, and swimming in the ocean. But this South Shore landmark is more than just a beach – it’s a boardwalk where cyclists and runners get exercise and where several annual charity walks are held each year, a site for live music, and a nature preserve. There are also food concessions on the recently-renovated boardwalk and an adventure course. Plus, it’s the site of the popular Bethpage Air Show every Memorial Day Weekend, a fireworks show on the Fourth of July, and the Magic of Lights holiday drive-thru show to round out the year. Safe to say Jones Beach has it all, and Long Islanders treasure it.
