Staten Island Beaches

beach

Life’s a beach! And here in Staten Island, we are fortunate to be entirely surrounded by scenic beach areas. No kid’s summer is complete until they’ve built a few sand castles and frolicked along the sea shore. So grab some sand pails and a few beach towels, and head out for a sunny day at the beach! Here’s where to go in Staten Island:

Cedar Grove Beach
Ebbitts Street and Cedar Grove Avenue
(718) 351-6387

The city’s newest beach is a converted oceanfront bungalow colony. This charming beach with its clear views of the Manhattan Bridge is smaller and somewhat more tranquil than its neighbors, Midland Beach and South Beach, and is popular with the area’s families.

Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk and Beach
On Lower New York Bay, from Fort Wadsworth to Miller Field, Midland Beach
(718) 987-0709

South Beach
Beachgoers can sunbathe while taking in a lovely view of the Verazzano Bridge, bike through a scenic trail, jog along the boardwalk, kayak, play tennis, or fish off of the Ocean Breeze Fishing Pier, one of the city’s most popular. The beach’s Fountain of Dolphins is a popular stop on any tour of the boardwalk.
Midland Beach
Midland Beach shares the Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk with neighboring South Beach, and tends to be the somewhat less crowded of the two beaches.

Wolfe’s Pond Beach
On Raritan Bay and Prince’s Bay, Holton to Cornelia Avenues
(718) 984-8266

Wolfe’s Pond
As one of Staten Island’s largest parks, Wolfe’s Pond Park wears many different hats. To some, it is a beautiful beach. To others, it is a wildlife and plant preserve. To still others, it is a recreation area with space to run, jump, and climb.

Great Kills Park
Hylan Blvd. and Buffalo Street
(718)987-6790

Located on Raritan Bay in Staten Island and part of the Gateway National Recreation Area, Great Kills Park offers fishing, boating, sports, swimming, and walks led by park rangers. The park is a stopping place for Monarch Butterflies on their migration to and from Mexico.
