Vernon Avenue Beach

Atlantic Beach, New York
Managed by The Swim Guide

Vernon Avenue Beach is located in the small village of Atlantic Beach off the South shore of Long Island. You can enjoy the amazing Atlantic oceanfront views all the while sunbathing, swimming and relaxing.
You can always fish and boat as well if you are looking for a more active summer. The Reynolds Channel is the perfect spot for bait since it is one of the major migration routes for most of the species that come into the Long Island bays. The Beach Channel Marina is only a ten-minute drive away if you want to rent out all the equipment for a trip on the water.
