This weekend I went out to Riis Park Beach Bazaar to get away from the city and feel some sand between my toes. Even though this beach was far ( you have to take the A train to the end of the line to Rockaway Park Beach, then take a Shuttle, then you take a short bus ride) it was definitely worth the trip! At Riis Park Beach Bazaar, there is a ton of fun activities for everyone to enjoy.
You can enjoy the beach sun and be safe from all the rays. At Riis, you can rent beach chairs and umbrellas for a small fee. You have the option to reserve them in advance or get them when you arrive. The beach was not too crowded and there are life guards surfing the waves.
On the boardwalk it's a party with Dj's mixing and live performances from up and coming artists.
There is so much to do on the board walk. You can rent bikes, three wheelers, relax in some banana hammocks and even do a little shopping.
FOOD AND DRINK
If you get hungry there are plenty of delicious foods you can choose from. There is also a pretty stocked bar with frozen drinks and beer. Everything is cash only but don't worry there are ATMs close by for your convenience.
