Jones Beach State Park's top attraction has always been swimming. With it's mile long white sand beach, boardwalk, and outdoor concert venue, Jones Beach is a classic East Coast beach experience. The park offers fine surf bathing along 6.5 miles of ocean beach, one-half mile of bay beach for still water bathing, and two swimming pools. The west end of the park provides wonderful surf fishing, a boat basin and undeveloped areas that are home to a variety of migratory birds and native plants. Jones Beach has a two mile boardwalk and a "Castles in the Sand" photo collection at the East Bathhouse which depicts the development of the Long Island State Park and parkway systems.
