Free Things To Do In Long Beach, NY

A relaxing beach getaway can add up pretty quickly and become a stressful experience. But don’t worry, Long Beach, NY has plenty of activities and sights that everyone can enjoy without spending a penny.



During summer season, non-locals require a pass to access the beach. Luckily, your booking with the Allegria Hotel includes the beach pass, so you can cross this expense off your list.

Take a leisurely stroll along the beach, swim or surf (bring your own board) in the ocean, build sand castles, play beach sports or just sit back and enjoy a book; the list is endless! If you want to take your beach experience up a notch, bring your own bike and pedal down the boardwalk’s bike-only lane (stretching for 2 miles). Runners can save money on tours by jogging across Long Beach or try barefoot-running on the 3.5-mile beach.

In summer, the Allegria Hotel rooftop pool opens its doors to its guest. The stunning, panoramic view from the pool is a free bonus! Additionally, our gym facilities overlook the beach and are free for all our guests.
