Beach Scene: The Rockaways

Posted by Bikini Owner

It's surfer-meets-hipster central: Hop on the NYC Beach Bus and head east from neighborhoods like Astoria and Williamsburg to find The Rockaways – the raddest beach community we know. This beautiful shore, with a thriving social scene, is the foolproof city escape — and a great alternative to farther-flung destinations on Long Island or the Jersey Shore. Here’s a glimpse of this sandy spot and its boardwalk — with places to eat, sleep, and have an A-OK summertime.

You’ll probably skip the ice cold waves but indulge in some serious sun basking.

Unless you're brave, like this soul.

But If you’re a surfer like this local, you’ll most definitely wear a wetsuit.

Posting up and doing nothing in a crowd feels so good. 

It's super easy to access from New York City — consider it an afternoon getaway from the hustle and bustle with your bestie.

You’ll probably end up at the Rockaway Beach Surf Club for tacos and booze — and may actually score an art exhibit and live music, too.

Mobile boutique shopping is also a thing.

Be prepared to rock major beach style – there’s always a sick photo opp.

This skinny peninsula is unlike any other beach town we’ve seen – its city-like vibe makes it extra unique.

And at the end of your visit, we bet you'll be jumping up and down too.
