The Recipe to a Romantic Getaway in Long Beach, NY

What is the quintessential romantic holiday? A beach, of course! Add a quaint yet modern, cozy yet sophisticated city to that combination and you’ll have an ideal destination for a retreat with that special someone in your life.

 

Generations of New Yorkers have escaped from the metropolis to Long Beach, NY, but couples have truly made the City By the Sea their own. As a favorite stop for lovebirds, the Allegria Hotel has learned a thing or two about what makes for a perfect beach getaway.

 

Pick the Right Hotel Room

When romance is involved, nothing but an oceanfront room will do. If you want to go all out, book a suite and enjoy a few days of utter relaxation with incredible ocean views - and these views are unique as we’re the only hotel on the Long Beach boardwalk. Our rooms include signature bath amenities and flat-screen TVs for when all you crave is a cozy evening together.

 

Have a Sensory Experience

The next ingredient in the recipe for the perfect romantic beach getaway is food. The Atlantica Restaurant, a favorite spot for locals and frequent visitors, offers a menu of expertly designed dishes. Take it slow, sip on some wine or cocktails at L’Onda Lounge, admire the Atlantic Ocean as your taste buds explode.

 

Take a Day Trip to Wine Country

For those willing to venture deep into Long Island, there’s no better choice than visiting the local wine country. Napa might be a renowned wine destination, but the vineyards tucked away in East Long Island are nothing short of picturesque.

North Fork is particularly famous for its wine tastings, cuisine and even live music. Book one of the many day-tours that offer an all-around experience, without having to worry about driving or hunting for places to eat.

 

Let Nature Do the Rest

The last ingredient, or the cherry on the cake, is, of course, the beach itself. While long walks along the beach are a must, set some time aside to explore other picture-perfect corners of Long Island. We’ve talked before about Captree State Park and Robert Moses State Park, as some alternatives to Long Beach’s iconic boardwalk.

 

Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary or planning to pop the question, any or all of these ideas will ensure you’ll have a moment to remember. Start off by booking your room and choosing one of our special offers.
