Lido Beach vacation rentals

Lido Beach is seaside fun in the shadow of the Big Apple

Lido Beach is about waking up to the bristle of sea grasses on the dunes each morning. It's about breathing the fresh froth of the Atlantic Ocean and lazing on powdery sands. It's about facing the rolling waves and wandering the boardwalk parks in search of New Yorker oyster shacks. Just a stone's throw from the heart of the Big Apple, Lido Beach vacation rentals offer a chance to unwind and relax with all the delights of Brooklyn and Manhattan on the doorstep. What's not to like?

Lazing and loving Lido Beach

Although home to just under 3,000 people, Lido Beach buzzes with life in the summertime. Regular music concerts pop up ad hoc in the oceanside carparks, rumbling with jazz ditties and grimy rock riffs as onlookers devour sizzling oysters from the grill. Meanwhile, the sand stretches entice everyone from beachcombers to swimmers to surfers, and longboards whizz over the whitecaps when the swells are high. Picnic spots and al fresco barbecues also pepper the whole area, while teams compete in the shuffleboard and basketball courts just meters from the shore.

Parks and bucket-list toppers in Lido Beach

While the local Lido West Town Park and the 6-mile-long Jones Beach State Park across the water offer plenty of sunbathing, swimming, and surfing potential just a hop from the doorstep of your Lido Beach vacation rentals, it's also worth bearing in mind just how close the bucket-list-busting attractions of the Big Apple are. In under an hour on the highway, you could be gawping up at the Empire State Building, snapping shots of Times Square, munching fat-crusted pizza pies in Little Italy, or checking off that visit to Lady Liberty herself.

Cool off with the ocean spray in Lido Beach

There's no question that this enclave of Long Beach and the Big Apple is at its very best when the warm summer months hit New York State. That means trips here between June and August promise the finest weather for swimming in the Atlantic swells or soaking up the rays. Of course, you'll be competing with oodles of other folk out of the big apple for the best Lido Beach vacation rentals then, but you can also look forward to a lively street scene, al fresco music concerts, and plenty of good vibes on the beaches.

Sandwiched between the city and the sea in Lido Beach

Lido Beach is hardly the wildest corner of New York State. To the north of town, the suburban tendrils of the Big Apple continue to shoot out towards the well-to-do Hamptons, while JFK International sprawls on the headlands just across the bay. However, there is a touch of nature here, coming mainly with the wide, sandy beaches of the Lido West Town Park and the Jones Beach State Park, which combine to offer rolling swells and undulating dune habitats; a place where seabirds mingle with gnarly surfers.
