Cedar Grove Beach

Staten Island, New York
Managed by The Swim Guide

Cedar Grove Beach, Staten Island's newest beach, the fourth, opened to the public in 2011. Now in its second year, this beach has remained obscure to many Islanders. Those aware of its remote and secluded location, at the end of Ebbitts Street and Cedar Grove Avenue, hope it remains one of the Island's secret spots. This beach was formerly a privately leased beach comprised of seaside bungalows, however the Parks Department reclaimed Cedar Grove after its lease expired in 2010, turning it into a public space. Swimming is only permitted until 6pm daily through Labor Day, when lifeguards are on duty. In years to come, they are hoping to have picnic areas, athletic fields, and other amenities you would enjoy in any city park.
