“Beautiful Beach”
Review of Gilgo Beach

Ranked #5 of 16 things to do in Babylon
Attraction details
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This great ocean beach is the perfect place for a summer day. The waves are great, so surfing is very popular here. This is a Town of Babylon beach, however so it's expensive to enter if you are not a town resident.

I've been here a couple of times. It was nice enough if you just want to spend a day at the beach. I can't say that it was anything above average.

Great place to surf,watch sun come up/set,people watch!! This place has been a mecca for surfers on Long Island since the 60's!! The Gilgo Beach Inn has great snack food for the gang and libations for the "older" members of the group as well!! There is a surfboard/boogie board rental shack in the parking lot c/o Bunger surf shop from Babylon!! They have all your beach needs ie: sun tan oil/sunscreen etc.There are picnic tables on the wooden"porch" surrounding the "Inn" and there are boat slips should you choose to arrive via the Great South Bay!!

Wonderful beach, great beach bar. Burgers, best fries, great drinks. Full service bar with live music most Sundays. Small playground for the kids. Town of Babylon beach. Non residents pay to enter parking lot for beach. GBI is open from April through early October, weather permitting.
