If you only take away one beach to visit from this list, visit Asbury Park this summer, it is a must! It is one of the best places for food, music, night life, beach life – everything! With an impressive and beautiful hotel nearby, the Asbury Hotel, you can make your stay here last a couple of nights with the girls! With great drinks, you might want to consider this!
One of the best beaches in the NYC city area to check out this summer is Rockaway Beach. This beach recently opened from reconstruction after the recent Hurricanes. In this, many people from NYC and across the East Coast have come to Rockaway Beach to visit the new, updated and pristine beach. With options to rent surfboards and great food nearby, suggest this beach next time the girls get together for a summer day-trip.
When it comes to American History and infamous beaches in the United States, Coney Island shines bright. While the beaches may be busy and full of people laughing and surfing, there is so much to do here! Take a walk on the Brooklyn Boardwalk or head over to Luna Park to ride a rollercoaster. Coney Island is a must visit at least once this summer!
If you have not visited Long Beach or the boardwalk yet, you are missing on a true summer experience. Long Beach is literally only 50 minutes outside of Manhattan and is completely worth the drive. With cheap prices, local vendors all around, and a great crowd of people, gather the ladies and make this one of your destination this summer.
If you are seeking to visit a beach that has built a reputation as one of the best beaches in the country, head to Coopers Beach in Southampton. When it comes to the Hamptons, much of it is private; however, Coopers Beach is the one beach with the easiest access. While parking may be a bit pricey, this is the whitest sand you might find near NYC.
