It's an all around great... More

This beach and marina are a great place to visit during the summer. It is much cleaner and less crowded than Jones Beach.

The beach is clean and not too crowed. They have a water park which is great for children. The Salsa Shack is a great small "deck" restaurant A great place to eat after a day at the beach.

Tobay is a good beach to go and chill with friends and family and enjoy some sun. The food shack and restaurant offer good food as well but can be a little pricey. Definitely check out this beach if you get tired of Field 4.
