I grew up in Long Beach. If you’re looking for a spot to camp so you can surf, this is perfect! It’s basically a parking lot, but it’s steps away from some of the greatest waves on the east coast. Showers are clean, there’s a dog park nearby, and the island is very bikable to get around.
benefits: allows dogs childrens playground beach programs like movie nights throughout the summer
There are not many places to camp on long island that are actually on the Atlantic ocean side. This is basically a parking lot but right on the other side of the dunes is Lido Beach. Which is fantastic for surfing. There is an indoor bathroom/shower room that is open here for 3 seasons too.
