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.

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

In addition to the great review, I would add that the Bay side has a great splash park for the younger children with many climbing and water activities. This beach requires Town of Oyster Bay residency.
