“Nice Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

It is in between Jones Beach and Robert Moses, next to Cedar Beach. I like it better than Overlook and Cedar because the walk isn't as far...when you have a toddler, you need the walk to be short! You do walk under a tunnel but it's very close to the parking lot, and once you get through it, the water isn't far.

Very expensive if you are not a Town of Babylon beach pass holder.

“Many memories as a kid there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Gilgo is always a fun beach to go there. Babylon residents get in more easily with a town pass.

“Best Town Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

Gilgo is the most laid back of the town beaches. The vibe is friendly and you always feel safe and relaxed. Always a good time, with a great local feel.

“Well kept secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

Lots of room to spread out at Gilgo. A 3 minute walk West and you find yourself almost alone on this beautiful beach
