Where can you go in a city to play tennis, walk the beach, play 3 par hole golf , eat a burger, play volley ball, and collect Seashells? Short Beach. Just down the road from the BDR airport. Can't miss it next year. Great for fall time too!

Very nice little beach. No crazy waves like on the ocean, nice concession stand, and never seen it crowded. Playground, skate park, and a green park right there.

It's a nice destination for a bike ride, and a nice beach, but not compelling. Getting there is interesting, since the route to the east takes you by surprisingly historic, if disused, military facilities (Grumman navy planes from WWII were made, and Desert Storm tank engines rebuilt, at the large buildings on the left approaching the beach)

Good sized beach. Open until midnight so you can catch some rays or play a game of nighttime volleyball on one of the several sand courts provided. Until 6pm there is a small entrance fee for non-residence. During day also Snack bar & bathrooms available in a centralized location so no big hikes to the bathroom, a plus if your toting several children. Has a playground on-site also. At night there are a lot of local teens hanging out however the town police do make regular rounds and there is plenty of light on the beach. Fun for a game of frizbee.
