This area is a great location for wind-related activities such as windsurfing and kiteboarding and provides important habitat for horseshoe crabs. There is also a kayak launch at Plumb Beach.
Plumb Beach includes a parking lot, restrooms, and a kayak launch. Plumb Beach is co-managed with NYC Parks.
