Breezy Point Tip

Overview

One of the most undisturbed natural areas of Gateway National Recreation Area, Breezy Point Tip is an isolated peninsula beach in New York City. This wild westernmost tip of Rockaway Peninsula, transferred to the National Park Service in 1972, features beach, bay shoreline, sand dunes, marshes and coastal grasslands.

Breezy Point offers the perfect destination for scenic walks on the pristine beaches, against a backdrop of distant Manhattan vistas. The coast here is also popular with fishermen from the tri-state area, who flock to its beaches to catch striped bass, blue fish and summer flounder.
