Beach at Coney Island

The Beach

Coney Island offers three miles of pristine shoreline right in the heart of Brooklyn. There’s ample room to relax, catch some rays, and swim in the ocean; the basketball, beach volleyball and handball courts are perfect for visitors looking to sneak in some exercise on a beautiful summer day. A simple, leisurely stroll on Coney’s picturesque boardwalk is always a good idea.

What's Happening

Coney Island has a packed calendar throughout the summer and beyond – such as Nathan’s famous July 4th Hot Dog Eating contest, fireworks on the beach, a sand sculpting competition, just to name a few. While most events take place from May to September, there are compelling reasons to visit year-round.
