Travel Guide

Staten Island, New York City 

Beaches

Midland Beach

 
 
Midland Beach lies along Staten Island’s east coast in the neighborhood of Midland Beach (formerly known as Woodland Beach). The beach is actually a continuation and situated on the southern end of South Beach, but a shorter beach. Just like South Beach, the beach at Midland Beach slopes gently into the calm waves and therefore safe for children to splash and wade in the water. The major difference for beachcombers is the beach here is less crowded compared to South Beach, especially during the summer months.

Midland Beach by whomever

The Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk continues from South Beach for another half a mile (less than a kilometer) to the southern end of Midland Beach. Facilities here include a children’s playground, handball and shuffleboard courts, picnic area, restrooms, and ample parking space. Children will love the Sea Turtle Fountain with its water sprinklers that they can play around and cool themselves. The Midland Beach Veterans Memorial honors Staten Islanders who served and died in World War I and II, Korean War, and Vietnam War.

Location: Father Capodanno Boulevard (between Seaview Avenue and Greely Avenue).
