No contest IMHO - Jersey Shore. Long Island's best are the Hamptons and Montauk. Montauk is truly beautiful, but the Hamptons are overrated and over-snobbified. Coney Island is truly historic and great, but rundown and dirty today.

Jersey Shore offers something for everyone all up and down the coast. There are more options on the Jersey Shore. You have pristine, undeveloped beaches like Island Beach State Park; residential areas with no boardwalk like many parts of LBI; the biggest, loudest, crowdedest boardwalks like Seaside Heights, Wildwood, and Point Pleasant; family-friendly boardwalks like Ocean City, NJ; you have world-class gaming casinos and hotel resorts on Atlantic City's famed boardwalk (which is the original boardwalk- the boardwalk is on of NJ's many gifts to the world); and you have every shade and degree of these options in between.

Hands down, the Jersey Shore RULES over NY's beaches.

This pretty much sums it up!

I have wonderful memories of a summer spent in Long Branch.
