Often dubbed as the “People’s Beach”, the Jacob Riis Park, which is situated at the Rockaway Beach Blvd in New York is a famous and popular summer destination for most of the visitors. Like every beach, you would want to reach this place early so that you get a good spot. The water is a dark shade of blue with patches of seaweed but mostly clear. The beach is generally clean and well maintained and there are lifeguards and rangers regularly on duty. You could pass your time by watching the waves hitting your knees. If you are lucky you may catch some dolphins, there. So, hurry up and do not waste your time. Bring your family here and have a fun time!

The People's Beach At Jacob Riis Park Reviews & Ratings
Nice clean beach.🏊♀️. It had snack shops,🍬restrooms,🧻🚻 outdoor showers🚿 to wash up, security👨✈️ on the beach and even a baby ambulance🚨 bus went by which was really nice to see. You pay for the parking entrance but in my opinion it's worth due to the presence of safety. Nice for the whole family to visit.👨👩👧
Easy to get to and hometown beach to everyone - truly the people’s beach. Always spots available in the yuge parking lot. Great live bands and between sets they play good music over the sound system.. The food and restrooms are a real plus . The beach is typical south shore style- wide and great sand. Weak or no cell signal on the beach which is a double edged sword. Love this beach!
Cold, but clean water, clean beach, good friendly atmosphere and interesting sites. Even though going to the beach is not my favorite thing to do, I did highly enjoy my experience at Riis Beach. I recommend taking the trip out to Far Rockaway and visiting this beach.
The best New York beach. Huge and no one bothers you. Can spend the entire day there like it’s your home.
Nice place, clean and with great open horizonte views. You can use beach equipment If you have. There is restroom and showers. Nice for family gatherings.
