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.

Camp kids and old ppl. The beach is so small, it's totally not worth small fee for a summer pass. It felt like I was an interloper at a private event.

Only Town residents, so not as crowded as Jones Beach. Right next door. Nicer Spray park for children.

One of the perks of living on Long Island in the Town of Oyster Bay is this beach! On the south shore and easily accessible via Ocean Parkway, Tobay Beach has both ocean front and bay access. I look forward to spending time here every summer!

Great beach with both ocean and bay beaches. Food service and water spray park attraction for kids. Senior citizens can get a free season pass too. Town of Oyster Bay residents can get a season pass for a $60 fee. Daily resident fee is $20 and daily non resident fees $50. Non-residents cannot use beach on weekends.
