What an amazingly peaceful place. A nice day, warm but breezy. Beach not crowded at all. The tide was calming and the water is cool to the touch. Horseshoe crabs, to pipers to beautiful seashells to sand dollars...how is amazing is this stretch of beach.

This is one of the best beach in long island area. A clear sand and water gives a very appealing view to all. A nice place to go with kids and family.

Field 6 is the closet to the beach, and is walking distance to the theater. There is a public shower so you can wash off some sand before enjoying your tail gate meal. Enjoy

I believe as part of the price you pay to get in your are allowed to use the locker rooms that also have showers. They should be located at Field 4 and Field 6. Check out the website for Jones Beach State Park.
