Beach Hair Don't Care!

Among the many splendors of the Huntington Township area nothing defines it more then the beautiful waters and  beaches.  Living in the communities surrounding its Five Harbors; Cold Spring Harbor, Lloyd Harbor, Huntington, Centerport and Northport means the water is never far away.  You can hear it, see it, breathe it, love it!

With 8 town beaches to choose from, you can enjoy a different beach for every weekend of the summer. All are open Memorial Day thru Labor Day, 7 days a week from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM.  There are lifeguards at all beaches from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM daily except for Crescent Beach which only has lifeguard protection 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM weekends and holidays till June 28, then daily June 29 - July 31. Resident permits for $40/season are available starting Memorial Day Weekend. Be sure to take advantage of this price to avoid the $25 daily fee. Vehicle registration and driver’s license required. 

Each beach has something to offer depending on what you are looking for...
