Walking the boardwalk at sunken Meadow state park is both relaxing and invigorating. Off season no charge, and no charge to Seniors during the week.

There are pros & cons to this beach depending on your likes. It faces north but on a clear day Connecticut can be seen across the sound. It is Rocky, wear water shoes. There are NO waves. At low tide the water is only waist high for about 1/2 mile out. There's a lot of flotsam and jetsam along the... More

One of my very favorite north shore beaches! Great for an early AM stroll along the boardwalk. The beach is usually calm, but it can get rough at times. Go and enjoy this scenic location.

We ride bikes at Sunken Meadow Park all the time and just love it. The beach (as far as the sand) is very nice, however it gets rocky near the water (like most of the north shore of LI). The other GREAT part of this park is the board walk on the water. It goes for over a mile and... More

This park has somehow become the destination of choice for the entire Bronx during the Summer time. During the offseason and mid-week it's a great place for a quick round of golf, a walk on the boardwalk or relaxing night on the beach. Avoid this place at all costs on Holidays (July 4, Labor Day, Memorial Day, etc.) The park... More

Sunken Meadow State Park has a beautiful beach with mild waves, perfect for children. It also has a boardwalk for exercise, concession stands, kayak launch areas, hiking trails through woods and scenic high bluffs and lots of wooded and grassy acreage for picnic and barbecues.

I grew up around here and love this place. The summer attracts a LOT of city folk and sometimes has festivals, so please check their event calendar before you go. It's a beautiful state park that is well taken care of throughout the year. Amazing hiking and running trails. There are signs around the park about poison ivy, so be... More

The boardwalk is a wonderful place to walk and meet people. The beach is perfect for young children and families. There is fishing and lots to discover. It is not for you if you like crashing waves.

There is something for everyone here. A beautiful (but rocky, beware!) beach with great swimming; hiking and running trails; picnic areas with barbecues; and a golf course.
