Decided to go this evening to the beach, sat 8/18, and parked at field 6. Didn’t mind paying the $10 entrance fee. The beach was disgusting: litter everywhere, bad beach etiquette (cursing, feeding the seagulls, spitting, nose blowing into the air & litter everywhere.) People...More

I've been going to Jones Beach for years. It's nice but very overcrowded during the day. I prefer to go after 4pm to avoid the admission.

No, but some, many on weekends, try. Cops are told you are "imbibing" and will approach you. I'm not sure what they do, but it probably will put a damper on your day, so.......

Yes. From field 6 there are ramps from the boardwalk to beach, and there are mats on the sand to get to the oceanfront.

Yes it is. It's open every day. Actually all year, even when the lifeguards stop, you can go and enjoy the nice, long boardwalk. I'm guessing it's about 3 or 4 miles long.
