Restaurants, ocean beach, bayside beach, water park, snack bar, etc....tobay keeps you busy all day. Awesome, but expensive parking if you don't live in Massapequa unfortunately. Definitely worth it for a full day at the beach if you want to experience Long Island beaches, though.

Tobay is a nice beach and it has a water park for the kids, but pricey to park if your not a resident of TOB. There's also a restaurant and food is ok.
