Manhattan Beach

Brooklyn, New York
Managed by The Swim Guide

Manhattan Park Beach is a wide, crescent-shaped beach located on Brooklyn's southern tip. It is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the south, Coney Island to the west, and the Kingsborough Community College Beach to the east. There is a huge parking lot located off of Oriental Boulevard. There are many amenities and recreational opportunities at the park and beach including an off-leash dog area, playgrounds, tennis courts, athletic fields, and a barbeque area. There are also showers and bathrooms. The beach has a lot of history, having originally opened as a summer resort in 1877. It was later opened to the public in 1955. Those interested in nature may be enticed to visit the beach during May and June when horseshoe crabs come to the shore for their mating season!
