Staten Island, New York City 


Cedar Grove Beach

Cedar Grove Beach, on Staten Island’s East Shore, is one of the four beaches in Great Kills Park. It is a small sandy beach stretching for just 2,000 feet (600 meters), sandwiched between New Dorp Beach in the north and Oakwood Beach in the south. While Cedar Grove Beach may not claim to be a tropical paradise, it was one of the best-kept secrets on Staten Island for nearly a century. It was once home to a colony of 40 private wooden bungalows (situated on public land) quietly tucked away with few knowing about the beach.

New York City’s Parks Department, which owns the land, took over the beach in 2010 and demolished the bungalows, except a few for use by the Parks Department. Cedar Grove Beach is now open to the public with lifeguards on duty during the beach season. It is a charming and tranquil beach with a scenic view of the bay and green backdrop of Great Kills Park. The beach is popular with families and away from the summer crowd at South Beach and Midland Beach.

Location: Cedar Grove Beach Avenue, Staten Island, New York, NY 10306.
