I live in Battery Park City and was recently told that there are beaches nearby that are relatively easily accessible. I was told that I could catch a ferry from South Street Seaport to local beaches, such as Sandy Hook.

I know that summer just ended, but I am an avid beach-goer and am already getting psyched up for next summer. Has anybody ever taken a ferry to a local beach and do you have any advice??

Thanks so much!!

Sandy Hook is really delightful but I have always driven. During the Summer I know that there is ferry service to the beach but off-season the boat may just be from commuters from Highlands making the beach inconvenent.
The round trip is $40 some bucks on the SEASTREAK Ferry.


If you go, the best beach is BATTERY GUNNISON...very nude friendly on the Southern part several block walk.
