Located just 4 miles east of historic Jones Beach on Ocean Parkway, TOBAY Beach is the Town of Oyster Bay’s premier south shore summer destination.  Once the backdrop for a Marilyn Monroe photoshoot, residents may choose to either enjoy the soothing sounds of the waves on the Atlantic Ocean beachside or bask in the calmer waters of the Great South Bay on the north side.  This location features two restaurants with waterfront dining and entertainment options as well as several concession stands for your refreshment.  The venue features a state-of-the-art spray park with splash and play water features to keep the children happy during the hot summer days.  For boating enthusiasts, a 150+ slip seasonal transient marina offers a family-friendly environment complete with playgrounds, picnic tables, bathrooms, and concession stand.
