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

Beach is nice. It is a Town of Oyster Bay resident beach which makes it better. Wish they would improve the rest rooms.

There not many custard shops left these days but Koors Brothers in still around. We were in Cape May this past week and there was a Koors shop in the Washington Street mall - what a pleasant surprise. As usual, on a warm night, the place was packed but they had a lot of help behind the counter so the... More
