Long Beach is a barrier island city found in Nassau County in New York. Dubbed “The City By the Sea,” it was founded in 1880 and evolved into a resort town, where the rich and famous flock to get their dose of Vitamin Sea. While it was devastated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, the area has since largely recovered. As its name suggests, activities on and off its long sandy beaches are its main attraction. Surfing and paddleboarding are some of the activities you can do in the water. Meanwhile, you can catch sight of people walking, biking, and skating on the Boardwalk. There are also other things to do and attractions to see beyond the water and the beach, such as the Long Beach Historical and Preservation Society Museum and the West End. Use this list to find the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Long Beach, New York.
Editor’s note: New York State has strict short-term rental restrictions but, in December 2020, Long Beach City Council adopted an Ordinance with a policy allowing registered and approved homeowners to list their properties on Airbnb for short-term rental, which will come in effect from June 2021. Trip101 does not support illegal rentals, so please perform due diligence by checking with the host when selecting an accommodation for your trip.
