Long Island's world class South Shore beaches are all easily accessible from the house. For the closest and most famous - Jones Beach State Park - look at the Directions section of this listing and start taking the Southern State route in reverse. Daily parking fee is $10. Travel south on North Wantagh Avenue and take the Southern State Parkway West. Then take the Wantagh Parkway South and follow the signs to Jones Beach. There are many parking fields and it's your choice as to which to use. Official Website: (URL HIDDEN)

I suggest doing a quick web search before you go as each has its own character, for example:
Here's one cool review on Yelp: Growing up with Jones Beach as your "home" beach you go through phases. Maybe as a kid you came to field 6. You loved walking down the boardwalk to the crowded area. Or sometimes you would go to field 5, and hang out in Zach's Bay. As a teen and through college, you realize that the crowded area is accessible via field 4. So once you start driving, you prefer field 4. Plus by the time you get to the beach, well the field 6 lot is full. Now you are married and perhaps with a kid on the way. Well all of a sudden field 6 is back in your life. Its quiet enough. Parking is closer to the actual beach. So no need to drag all the beach toys through that long tunnel. And you get there earlier because well the kid needs a nap around 2. I'm guessing I'll be at field 6 until my daughter begs me to park at field 4 because her friends are there.
You have everything you need here. Towels, chairs, restrooms and showers. They've added this long carpeted walkway towards the beach. Its a nice touch. The sand is clean and well the water is there too. Plus Jones Beach is a state park so its usually cheaper to go here than a town's beach.
There are three Long Island Railroad Stations within a few minutes drive of the house: Bethpage, Farmingdale and Hicksville. For directions to the Hicksville stateion, see the Directions section of this listing and follow the "SHOPPING AND DINING ROUTE" in reverse. The Hicksville station will be on your left toward the end of the Jerusalem Avenue section of the route.
Other things to note
If you want to register for more than two guests, you must contact me through a message here ahead of time. Please tell about each of the guests because I will need to see if the permanent tenants in the house will be OK with an extra airbed or two in the living room and will need time to bring the airbed and linens, etc. if they are currently at another location.
Note, there is not enough room in the bedroom for an airbed, but if you are comfortable with it, one or two extra guests might fit on the bed and floor (in a sleeping bag).
We have not child-proofed the house. If you would like us to take precautions for your visit please tell us what you would prefer and we will do our best and let you know what we can accomplish for you. For example, we would be glad to install safety plugs in the outlets if you desire.
No pets are allowed, sorry.
No smoking is allowed in the house; however, smoking is permitted on the rear patio in the backyard.
