7 Great Beaches On The East Coast

When hot weather hits, plenty of people flock to the beach for some fun in the sun. 

The East Coast probably can’t rival the sugary beaches of Turks & Caicos, or the gold sands of St. Martin, but there are a few spots here and there that are serviceable.

Here are seven great beaches on the East Coast to consider.

Gunnison Beach

Gunnison is the best nude beach in the tri-state area, and one of the best in The United States, outside the Caribbean and Europe. 

Kennebunk Beach Trifecta

Mother’s Beach is great for families. North of that is the pebbly Middle Beach, a great spot for photoshoots. Set up your lounge chair and enjoy a good book at Gooch’s Beach.

Brighton Beach

The great thing about Brooklyn’s Brighton & Coney Island Beach is that swimming isn’t your only option. Along the boardwalk you’ll find restaurants, concession stands & Luna Park

Coopers Beach

one of the many beaches of The Hamptons (specifically Southampton), gets high points for its pretty dunes, sparkling sand and absolutely ridiculous real estate.

Kirk Park Beach

Kirk Park Beach in Montauk lacks the snobbery of The Hamptons beaches, though you may cat ch a celebrity or two trying to be incognito.

Calf Pasture Beach

This beach stretches for 3 miles. Guests can rent boats, kayaks, and learn how to sail.  In the summer, there are concession stands, restaurants, classic car shows and live music.

Sherwood Island State Park Beach

Aside from swimming, there are facilities for kite flying, volleyball, and saltwater fishing (the latter is permitted in non-swimming areas close to the shore.)

who says you can only do beach activities abroad?
