Bayside beach great for small children since there are no waves, very calm water. Great water spray park for little children. Also a transient marina open to residents only very reasonable rates. restrooms and concession stands at all beach areas. small... More

Ocean and Bay, plus 2 great restaurants on the bay side. TOB residents only. A great place to walk in the winter months when the wind does not come off the ocean. Singleton's Restaurant is a great place to eat outdoors and it's right on the beach which overlooks the bay.

Tobay is a great and clean beach that is not too crowded like Jones beach sometimes gets. There is nothing to complain about when on the beach

I've been visiting Tobay, the town beach for Town of Oyster Bay, for many years. Unlike other town beaches on LI, Tobay has improved over the years. Excellent maintenance keeps the beach safe and clean. The addition of the kids Water Park is perfect for family outings. And the addition of beachside dining caps off a great day at the... More

We just love bringing our son to Tobay Beach! It's great as it has both a bay side and an ocean side. We don't go to the ocean side that often as it gets really crowded but it has a nice concession stand with plenty of seating. The bay side offers three dining options with a casual fast-food concession, a... More

I may be prejudiced because I live in Massapequa and we raised our children in the area but, this place is well maintained and a complete pleasure to visit. Unfortunately you must be a Town of Oyster Bay Resident or pay a high entry fee to get in. Clean white sand, Long Island beaches are world renound for sand quality,... More

I've been to many beaches in the world and can say TOBAY beach is one of the nicest with clean soft sand. The newly updated food pavilion provides shade and a nice place to relax.

This is a great beach primarily for residents of the Town of Oyster Bay. Life guards on duty. Surfing to either side. There is a snack bar right on the beach with bathrooms. For a little better food , you can walk over to the bay side and go to the Seafood Shack for a more substantial meal and a... More

Mainly for township residents, as its part of the parks system of the Town of Oyster Bay, non - residents can visit this beach on weekdays for a fee as well. There is a marina (town residents again only) on the bayside, and a lifeguard staffed Memorial to Labor Day ocean beach and bayside beach for the little ones. Eateries... More
