Most people come to Long Beach with one goal in mind - to kick back, relax, and take in the views. And Long Beach does have quite the views. Here are some of our favorites near the Allegria Hotel.
Yes, we like to brag. But we’re not the only ones talking about the views on the property. Our restaurant, Atlantica, and our bar, L’Onda Lounge our constantly topping Yelp and TripAdvisor reviews for the best view in Long Beach. But let us let you in on a little secret - the Allegria Hotel rooftop is by far our favorite. With a heated infinity pool, a rooftop bar, and the stunning views of the Atlantic, this is one view you won’t find anywhere else in Long Beach.
A short drive from the Allegria Hotel, this seaside state park is well worth the trip. With five miles of shoreline and plenty of room to walk along the beach, Robert Moses State Park is a favorite of both visitors and locals alike. Follow the trail to the Fire Island Lighthouse for an especially scenic vista.
If there is any place to rival the views at the Allegria Hotel, the Long Beach Boardwalk would have it be it. However, the Allegria Hotel is located on the boardwalk, so we’ll have to call it a draw. Either way, the boardwalk remains one of our favorite spots for people watch and staring out at sea.
A Nassau County tradition, Jordan Lobster Farms is definitely something to cross off your list when visiting Long Beach. Opened in 1938, this lobster market has been serving up one of the best lobster rolls in the area for years. But what really makes the experience is their back patio on the water. That view at sunset and a fresh lobster on the table are where it’s at.
Here’s another view that’s worth the trek. Although a 30-minute drive from the Allegria Hotel, it’s one that’s all coast, which makes for great scenery even before you arrive at your destination. At Captree State Park you can catch some amazing sunsets as well as prime views of the Robert Moses Causeway, and the Fire Island Lighthouse as well. It’s also a spot known for its crab population - so pack some bait and go crabbing while you’re there
