Jones Beach State Park (or just "Jones Beach") is a state park in New York. It is located in southern Nassau County on Jones Beach Island, a barrier island linked to Long Island by the Meadowbrook State Parkway, Wantagh State Parkway, and Ocean Parkway. The park was created by the Long Island State Park Commission as part of the development of parkways on Long Island.
The park, 6.5 miles (10.5 km) in length, is renowned for its white sandy beaches (which, except for the beach on Zachs Bay, face the open Atlantic Ocean) and furnishes one of the most popular summer recreational locations for the New York metropolitan area. It is the most popular and heavily visited beach on the East Coast, with an estimated six million visitors per year. The Jones Beach Theater, an outdoor arena in the park, is a popular musical and concert venue. The park also includes a two-mile (3.2 km) boardwalk.
Tobay Beach is a restricted access recreational beach located in the middle of Jones Beach Island, off the South Shore of Long Island, Nassau County, New York, within the Massapequa 11758 Zip code. Tobay Beach is far east of Jones Beach State Park and just west of West Gilgo Beach across the Nassau–Suffolk County line. Its name is a portmanteau for the Town of Oyster Bay, which owns and manages the beach. Residents of the town are allowed entry, with limited access for non-residents.
