Nice place to visit on a weekend or during the sunny day. I enjoyed the walk with the views of the ocean, the bridge and the NY skyline very much.

The dolphins fountain when you pull in is gourgous. The boardwalk is very clean and a delightful place to sit and watch the waves crashing or even the sunset or rise. A very relaxing place to visit.

You'll enjoy watching the sun set as you hear the beach waves crashing. You can also visit a concession stand for some food, drinks or treats. Bathrooms were actually quite clean as well. Love coming in the summer when they have fireworks too!

In summer, a local restauranteur hosted a fireworks show every Wednesday night in the summer. Bands okay and around 9:15, a free fireworks show takes place. It's really fun and festive and perfect for the family.

We utilize the boardwalk and its extensions on both sides for our walking and getting the fresh ocean air. The length of the boardwalk is about 5 miles. That includes the paved section, next to Miller Fields. Rarely is it crowded, unless you happen to...More

It is easy however it may take about 25-35 minutes to get to the boardwalk. You'll need to take bus S51 or S52 from the St George Ferry Terminal to one of the bus stops alongside the boardwalk.
