Of all the beaches in the city Rockaway is one of my favorite. The beach is much cleaner than most others in the five boros and it isn't as crowded.
We enjoy spending a nice hot summer day relaxing and enjoying the beach as often as we can and most recently spent a few hours in the afternoon catching some sun.
If you decide to "bathe" in this beach, please be extra careful. The currents are very dangerous here and many people have drowned because of the strong undertows.
